Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: NIH study shows many preteens screen positive for suicide risk during ER visits

(NIH/National Institute of Mental Health) A new study found nearly one-third of youth ages 10 to 12 years screened positive for suicide risk in emergency departments. As part of a larger study on youth suicide risk screening in emergency departments, researchers at NIMH and collaborators explored how frequently preteen youth ages 10 to 12 screened positive for suicide risk. Notably, 7 percent of the preteens who screened positive for suicide risk were seeking help for physical - not psychiatric - concerns.
