Suicide in music subcultures refers to the relationship between members of a subculture of music fans and the act of suicide. Researchers have examined the relationship between Heavy metal subculture , [1] Goth subculture , [2] Emo subculture, [3] and opera subculture [4] and suicide. A study published on the British Medical Journal concluded that "identification as belonging to the Goth subculture [at some point in their lives] was the best predictor of self harm and attempted suicide [among young teens]", and that it was most possibly due to a selection mechanism persons that wanted to harm themselves later identified as goths, thus raising the percentage of those persons who identify as goths. The study found that the "correlation was stronger than any other predictor.

Goth subculture linked with history of suicide and self harm

Goths Committing Suicide by the Hundreds: Self-Harm Roundup — The Belfry Network

Teenagers who are goths are at increased risk of self-harm or suicidal tendencies than if they took drugs or were depressed, according to research in today's British Medical Journal. They are more likely to inflict injury on themselves or attempt suicide than if they smoke, drink or have divorced parents - all other factors strongly associated with self-harm. But the researchers insisted parents should not blame their children's goth lifestyles if they are having mental health problems - most are likely to begin self-harm before they begin wearing black clothes and listening to Sisters of Mercy. The correlation was stronger than any other predictor among those interviewed.

Teen goths more prone to suicide, study shows

Objective To investigate whether deliberate self harm is associated with contemporary Goth youth subculture. Setting School and community based study of young people living in the Central Clydeside Conurbation, Scotland. Participants people aged 19, surveyed in and followed-up since age 11 Main outcome measures Lifetime prevalence of self harm and attempted suicide and their association with Goth youth subculture, before and after adjusting for confounders. Adjusting for potential confounders did not significantly attenuate this association.
Young people who identify as goth and emo are more likely to self-harm or suffer suicidal thoughts, according to new research. The study of more than 6, teens and people in their 20s found those who belong to alternative subcultures — which also included punks and metal fans — were at greater risk than their peers. A greater chance of experiencing victimisation and hate crime was suggested as a possible cause for the increased risk. So, too, was the idea that such groups traditionally attract self-defined outsiders who may already be suffering some residual depression. Health, education and social service staff should be made aware of the link and build it into their strategies for dealing with young people, he added.
