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. 

Some mental health experts believe the transient, fast-growing nature of the city may contribute to increased social isolation among residents. People who have a lack of social support may develop depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation.
