    hello all im new here and was wondering what seems to be the general age of you all here? im 30 am have been having a hard time lately, i feel kinda weird about being here cuz folks seem to think only young adults have issues. but i can relate to a lot of what some of you all are saying here. so if you don't mind what's the age range or folks here outta curiousity?

    To be honest, the age range is actually anywhere from 12-40, sometimes higher. Depends really, I mean I'm sure there are people over 40 here, and on a very rare case, peope under 12. While the majority is around 17-28, it doesn't mean there is not people above or below that range. There is also a forum made for this, where people over 30 can share their opinions and discuss things.

    Most are youngsters yet quite a few are fully adults. There is a section dedicated to oldies which means from 30 years old and above where to discuss, vent, rant, share or else....

    The section is called " The Gathering" and it can be found on the main page, just scroll down the page and you will find it. We meet in the " Antiquitie's Friends " section of the gathering.

    See you there?

    I'm 20, so i guess i fit in the young adult range. But don't worry, i wouldn't say 30 was old at all, far from it!
    I did some research a few days ago on this, and it said the majority of people who suffer from suicidal thoughts are elderly. I found that really surprising! However, the trend is changing to be mainly teens - 40 something.
    I know there are more mature people on here, but people in my age range will still happily talk to you, you won't be left out!

    Best

    I am 32. I was thinking the same thing. It seem like mostly people in there 20's are on here. I was beginning to foolish thinking like I do, because of my age.

    I was suicidal when I was 22 and got out of it. then at 25, it happenned again. at 28, recurred. Now I'm 35 and "I'm going through it again. I guess i'll have it again and again and again until the day when I commit suicide. thats the way i think my life will end.

    29 here.

    The age group w/ the highest rate of suicide is the elderly, but not by a big margin, if I remember correctly.
