September PSA

National Suicide Prevention Awareness

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness month.

Nearly 40,000 people in the United States die from suicide annually, or 1 person every 13 minutes. This exceeds the rate of death from homicide and AIDS combined. More people die by suicide than from automobile accidents.


While suicide is the second leading cause of death for those ages 15 to 34, in 2013 (the latest year for which data is available) the highest number of suicides among both men and women occurred among those aged 45 to 54. The highest rates of suicides (suicides per 100,000) occurred among men aged 75 and up and among women aged 45 to 54. [ https://www.samhsa.gov/suicide-prevention ]  


The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
is a national network of local crisis centers that provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  That number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
