In the U.S., adults 65 years and older have the highest rates of suicide among any other age group, according to Jerry Reed, Director of EDC's Center for the Study and Prevention of Injury, Violence, and Suicide and Director of the Suicide Prevention Resource Center. EDC is partnering to develop a Suicide Prevention Assessment and Resource Kit (SPARK) to help staff of residential facilities for older adults recognize the warning signs of suicide and create a healthier environment for residents.
