Youth involved in the juvenile justice system have an increased risk of suicide and the risk is further increased for youth with a mental illness or substance use disorder. Youth in residential facilities have nearly three times the suicide rate of youth in the general population, and suicide is the leading cause of death for youth in confinement.
Juvenile justice in the United States is a collection of state and local court-based systems whose purpose is to respond to young people who come into contact with law enforcement and are accused of breaking the law.

In addition, for juveniles in correctional facilities, being placed in solitary confinement or restrictive housing also has the potential to worsen mental health issues (National Institute of Justice 2016).

The system is composed of a federal and many separate state, territorial, and local jurisdictions, with states and the federal government sharing sovereign police power under the common authority of the United States Constitution.
