I don't know these statistics and wasn't able to find them online- most of the stats that I found (which aren't exactly what you're looking for) were out-dated anyway. I do know that the suicide rate for the general population in the U.S. is 1% but this probably isn't all that helpful for you. I also found this info which might be of interest to you (but is old):

"The 1992 California Mental Health Survey conducted by the California Department of Mental Health indicates serious mental health disorders in 5% to 7% of youth 0 to 17 years old, a range of 460,000 to 644,000 children and youth."

Sorry I can't be more helpful. If you'd like, I can opt out of this question and let another expert try. Let me know.

I am also a psychologist and could research this. I asked the question because I do not have the time. This answer was lacking in any expertise. In the ten minutes that I googled it myself I found so much more information. I am not willing to pay this person any money. If he is a psychologist trying to help, he should spend much more time in other search engines. I am extremely dissatisfied.

As I mentioned, I do not know the answer to your question but wanted to respond because you had asked for me specifically. I will opt out so that another expert can help you.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
