Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in the US for those ages eleven to twenty-four, and suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US for all ages.
Suicide prevention efforts should be informed by the key issues faced within communities (i.e. stigma, social stressors, lack of trained mental health workers, access to mental health care), the resources already available (counseling, primary care, sports clubs, events), and the skills and strengths of individuals and organizations in the community.
Let us bring programs that will help create support systems in your communities and begin conversations that will help with awareness and prevention.
