Suicide prevention month

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), annually more than 47,500 Americans die by suicide making it the fourth leading cause of death for ages 34-54. For every death by suicide, there are 25 suicide attempts.

September marks National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, a time to bring awareness to warning signs, to listen and have open dialogue and to learn about resources.

Take note, kids as young as age 10 attempt suicide, men are four times more likely to take their own life with rates highest among those over 75, and approximately one person attempts suicide every 31 seconds.
