It Can Only Take One to Save a Life

Over 700,000 people die from suicide each year. That's one person every 11 minutes. In the United States, that's one person every 11 minutes. For every adult who dies by suicide, it's estimated that more than 20 others attempt it. It is the leading cause of death for individuals over the age of 85. More than half of those who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition, causing confusion and tremendous loss for families and communities. One in 11 high school aged youth reporting having made a suicide attempt and one in five high school aged youth report having seriously considered attempting suicide. It also leaves a lasting impact on businesses. Serious mental illness is associated with $193.2 billon loss annually in the U.S., half of which is attributed to reduced productivity of workers. But, 94% of adults surveyed in the United States believe suicide can be prevented. So there is hope. If you are feeling hopeful there is a solution, but might be feeling helpless on where to start, we can help.
