The legalization of same-sex marriage in certain states has been linked to a decrease in suicide rates among U.S. teens, a new study found. Researchers found that suicide attempts among high schoolers fell by seven percent following the legislation. The implementation of the law had the most impact on gay, lesbian, and bisexual teens, for whom the suicide rate dropped by 14 percent. Researchers collected data from more than 760,000 students between 1999 and 2015.
