Suicide Suicide is now the leading tenth cause of death. According to World Health Organization 2014, men are more likely to commit suicide than women. Women are seen as having more complex and flexible coping strategies than men. Higher rates of suicide have been reported among white males with lowest rates in black men. Knowing who is committing suicide in terms of race, location is important in identifying the major cause of suicide as different races are unique in different terms. Health promotion is therefore important in protecting individuals against suicide.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
