New Study Investigates When Suicide is Most Likely

An article published by CBS News explores when suicide is most likely, which according to a new study published in Sleep, is after midnight, between 2 and 3 in the morning. For those who suffer from nightmares and insomnia, these conditions contribute to an increased risk of suicide, refuting previous research that asserted more suicides occurred during the day. In research covering 35,000 suicides, the rate of suicide per hour reached its highest percentage at 16.27 between 2 and 3 a.m., with the midnight hour slightly lower at 10.27 percent.
