Running Head: Vulnerable Population Summary2The vulnerable group that I choose for the written assignment will be Suicide and homicide liable people. I choose this topic because suicide and homicide happens daily around the world and the people in these populations are very vulnerable and needs help. Suicide is the leading cause of death in the United States and for every suicide attempt it costs the United States billions of dollars annually.When it comes to suicide, income plays a huge factor because most people who commit suicide do it because of financial issues and financial stress. When a person is unemployed they may feel isolated or feel like a void of purpose. When you are unemployed that means no incomeis coming in therefore you cannot pay your bills, in which makes you even more stressed. In hindsight, a lot of homicides have occurred because of individuals being financially stressed. Most of all homicides have a motive behind it and that motive is money, rather a person is being robbed, burglarized or owed money. People who are financially struggling may see no end in sight when it comes to their debt and bills, this can take a major toll on a person’s mental health.Another factor that has an impact on this population is Gender. Men die by suicide 3.5x more often than women. Male suicide rates increases very steadily with age and peaking in the late 40s than falling significantly and rising again in the 80s.
