Researchers surveyed more than 8,000 Canadian teens and found that those who had a classmate die by suicide were more likely to contemplate or attempt ending their life than those who were not exposed to such deaths. The impact of suicide contagion was more pronounced in 12- to 13-year-olds compared with older teens, according to the study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
