Mental Health in Las Vegas  

For the past 30 years, Las Vegas has had one of the highest suicide rates in the United States. According to a Harvard University study, people who live in Las Vegas have a 50% higher risk of suicide than people who live elsewhere in the country. Residents who leave Las Vegas for vacation or other reasons may find their suicide risk decrease.
