Suicide can be prevented!

In 2008, there were 36,035 reported suicide deaths in the U.S., according to the latest available data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in this country.

Every 14.6 minutes someone dies by suicide.

Research has shown that 90 percent of people who die by suicide have a diagnosable psychiatric disorder at the time of their death, most often unrecognized or untreated depression.

Suicide can be prevented.

A woman takes her own life every 90 minutes in the U.S., but it is estimated that one woman attempts suicide every 78 seconds.

An estimated 19 million Americans suffer from depression.

Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death for adults between the ages of 18 and 65 years in the United States (29,668 suicides).

Every day, approximately 99 Americans take their own life.

 There are an estimated 8-25 attempted suicides for every suicide death.
