2017 Suicide in Indiana Report

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) Division of Trauma and Injury Prevention (DTIP) is pleased to announce the release of the updated Suicide in Indiana Report. The report features suicide data from 2011 through 2015, and self-inflicted emergency department and hospitalization data from 2011 through 2014. The previous report was released in September 2013. Suicide is a major preventable public health problem throughout the United States and Indiana. Individuals who die by suicide cross all economic, racial/ethnic, age and social boundaries. Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death among Hoosiers and self-inflicted injury contributes to the number of hospitalizations and emergency department visits each year.
