Why Is Untreated ADHD Contributing to the Increasing Suicide Rate Among Black Youth?

Historically, deaths through suicide has been higher among whites than any other racial group. Recent studies have shown a growing rate of black youth who have now surpassed their white counterparts. The assumption is depression would be the major contributing factor to an increase in deaths through suicide. In many instances, family members say the child never seemed to be depressed. New studies show that much of the increase has been correlated to ADHD and untreated learning disabilities.
