U.S. researchers reviewed data on about 90,000 women that were enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study from 1996 to 2010. 36 suicides happened during this time.

The study found that nearly 19% of women in the study attended religious services more than once a week; about 41% attended once a week; around 16% attended services less than once a week, and nearly 24% never attended religious services.
