It will probably continue to be a difficult question to answer. Polls include such things as: people who identify as Mormon, which could mean anything from a TBM to a Jack Mormon, to someone who was born into a Mormon family. In Utah, as of 2004, those in that group were:" 62.4% with every county showing a decrease." (Edit - forgot the link to the article in the Salt Lake Tribune)
So, with that in mind, I can speak from nearly 40 years of experience, mostly in CA. I know of only a couple of members who committed suicide (in CA), in that entire time. Could there have been more that we didn't know about? Sure.
In each case, there were a lot of problems that were not addressed or were unable to be addressed. Depression and grieving seem to be the main issues. But, I don't believe any of us know the real reasons.
