The Bhutanese-Nepali community has the highest rate of suicide of any refugee population in the United States. Federal and local investigators have been trying to figure out why, but there appear to be no clear reasons.

Nearly 2,000 Bhutanese refugees have resettled in New Hampshire in the last six years, and recently they had their first suicide.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Ryan Lessard of New Hampshire Public Radio reports on how the community is responding to the tragedy.
