How does Landmark know the suicide rates of those who attend Landmark?
Actually, their disclaimer says...
] "In less than 1/1000 of 1% of participants, there have been reports of unexplained suicide or other destructive behavior."
Less that 1/1000 of 1%.
Are you kidding? That is another flagrant lie, and deliberate trick language. (they use the words "unexplained suicide", its all word games).
How do they track it? Where are the facts?
Does an independent source track what happens to people who attend Landmark.
Of course not.
Frankly, that is another Landmark trick.
For 100,000 people, 1/1000 of 1% = 1 person.
(100 000 x .01) / 1 000 = 1
But the suicide rates for the USA, are
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Male 17.6 Female 4.1 in 100,000 people.

So how could the Landmark suicide rates be from 4 to 17 times lower than the general population?
Where is the proof?
Landmark offers NO PROOF.
They just made it up. Its shocking they can get away with this type of thing.
There is real evidence that suicide attempts skyrocket for people with trauma.\
The reality is that people are getting hurt, people are dying from suicide, and they just don't care. All they care about is keeping the money flowing in, and not being held accountable for hurting people.

The Relationship Between PTSD and Suicide
Does PTSD increase an individual's suicide risk?
A large body of research indicates that there is a correlation between PTSD and suicide. There is evidence that traumatic events such as sexual abuse, combat trauma, rape, and domestic violence generally increase a person's suicide risk.
Trauma, PTSD, and Suicide
In a survey of 5,877 people across the United States, it was found that people who had experienced physical or sexual assault at some point in their life also had a high likelihood of attempting to take their own life at some point:
Nearly 22% of people who had been raped had also attempted suicide at some point in their life.
Approximately 23% of people who had experienced a physical assault had also attempted suicide at some point in their life.
These rates of suicide attempts increased considerably among people who had experienced multiple incidents of sexual (42.9%) or physical assault (73.5%).
They also found that a history of sexual molestation, physical abuse as a child, and neglect as a child were associated with high rates of suicide attempts (17.4% to 23.9%)
People with a diagnosis of PTSD are also at greater risk to attempt suicide. Among people who have had a diagnosis of PTSD at some point in their lifetime, approximately 27% have also attempted suicide.
