    This 'Suicide among young people in Scotland' report highlights that suicide was the leading cause of death among children and young adults, accounting for one in four (25.7%) lives lost, during the period 2011 to 2020. It also highlights that those across the 5-24 age group who died by suicide were less likely to have had contact with a healthcare service in the period before death, compared to older adults who died by suicide.

    The report, published by Public Health Scotland (PHS), presents an analysis of information held on the Scottish Suicide Information Database (ScotSID). Established in 2009, ScotSID provides a central repository for information on all suicide deaths in Scotland. This latest report presents data on deaths from suicide, registered with the National Records of Scotland (NRS) during the period 2011 to 2020, among people aged 5-24 years.
