Suicide rate among Native American teens increasing (yet no mention of low vitamin D) – May 2015

Pine Ridge Indian Reservation Struggles With Suicides Among Its Young New York Times

VitaminDWiki

Dark skinned people around the world now have low vitamin D levels
Vitamin D levels are the lowest during the Winter and early Spring
Native American teens may want to lighten their skin
  – so they may keep out of the sun, and thus get even less vitamin D
Suicide is related to low levels of vitamin D

Note: American Indian/Alaskan Native suicide increasing by 49% per decade (by suffication, all ages)
Perhaps higher rate if include all forms of suicide
