"When we looked at hospitalizations for suicidal ideation and suicidal encounters over the last decade, essentially 2008 to 2015, we found that the rates doubled among children that were hospitalized for suicidal thoughts or activity", Dr. Gregory Plemmons of Vanderbilt University told NBC News.

They cited research, including a report from the U.S.

Plemmons said the show presented a crossroads for many, but added that his study's data can not be ignored, particularly as suicide is the third leading cause of death among adolescents in the United States.

According to the data, the researchers were able to identify more than 115,000 encounters for suicide tendencies in emergency departments at 31 children's hospitals.

To reach these findings, researchers used billing data from the Pediatric Health Information System database, which tracks youth emergency room and inpatient hospital visits. Rates were higher during the school year than in the summer, and almost two-thirds of the visits involved girls, according to results published in the medical journal Pediatrics. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Adolescents (ages 15-17), comprised about half of these encounters, followed by adolescents ages 12-14 (37%) and children ages 5-11 (12.8%). Increases were most prominent among girls and adolescents aged 12-17 years.

There was a significant average annual increase in these types of encounters (average annual increase 0.16 percentage points, 95% CI 0.15-0.17, P 0.001).

The study revealed that the suicide-related rates were lowest in summer, a season which has historically seen the highest numbers in adults, suggesting that youth may face increased stress and mental health challenges when school is in session. "We were also surprised to see the strong temporal association with the academic calendar (hospitalization rates were twice as high in October than July, for instance)".

"The growing impact of mental health issues in pediatrics on hospitals and clinics can longer be ignored, particularly in a time when mental health resources for children appear to be static, and woefully scarce across the U.S", said Greg Plemmons, lead author of the study and associate professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Monroe Carell Jr.

Study limitations included potential misclassification of non-suicidal self-harm encounters as suicide ideation or suicide attempts.

Plemmons and co-authors disclosed no relevant relationships with industry.
