In brief: No

I have worked with this population for over twenty years.
None of them ever completed suicide. Homicide is another issue. I would view them as the quintessential survivors, but sometimes willing to kill for their own reasons or when directed to by others.

In brief: No clear data

Suicide rate in the general population is about 11.
3 per 100, 000. Suicide attempts, non suicidal self harm, self mutilation occur frequently in this population but I am not aware of the rates of suicide.
