Why does risk for suicide increase drastically during adolescence?

Although research has identified general risk factors for suicidal behavior across the lifespan, research to date has not explained why suicide risk increases so drastically during adolescence. A current focus of our research is on developmental changes during adolescence that may confer risk for suicidal thoughts and behaviors in youth.
