05. Cost Estimate

| No Comments

According to the Center for Suicide Prevention, in 2005, the estimated costs of deaths due to suicide in the entire USA population was 16 billion dollars, while that of non-fatal suicide attempts was 4.7 billion dollars. Yang and Bijou (2007), estimated the economic cost of each youth that completed suicide to be $1,022,950 from lost lifetime savings (using a life expectancy of 65) while the estimated medical costs for a failed suicide attempt was estimated to be $12,570 in 2005.

The costs-benefits of suicide are two-fold: (1) The direct and indirect costs-benefits of suicide and failed suicide attempts (2) The costs-benefits of creating and sustaining suicide prevention intervention programs. The cost-benefits can be described as monetary, non-monetary, perceived and actual.
