Mental Health Statistics in Pittsburgh

Suicide is a serious issue in Pittsburgh and the surrounding Allegheny County. In 2017, 215 county residents died by suicide. This number was a 66% increase from 2010 (130 deaths).

Pittsburgh and Allegheny County have also been hit hard by the opioid crisis. In 2017, at least 652 county residents died from drug overdose. Around 75% of these deaths involved the synthetic opioid fentanyl. Of all the counties across America, Allegheny County ranks third in the number of fentanyl-related deaths.

According to the county’s Chief Medical Examiner, opioid overdoses only make up “a couple” of confirmed suicides. In other words, most people who overdosed on opioids did not intend to kill themselves. That said, intentional drug poisoning/overdose is the third leading cause of suicide in Allegheny county. The vast majority of overdose suicides involve an antidepressant.
