Suicide: warning signs and prevention

- Jun/2018

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in the United States—a time to raise awareness while connecting individuals with suicidal ideation to treatment services. Events taking place during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month include conferences, educational seminars, and training courses about suicide and depression, among others.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death in people between the ages of 15 to 34 in the US. Each year, more than 44,000 individuals die by suicide in this country. For every person who commits suicide, approximately other twenty-five individuals attempt to end their lives. It is a serious public health issue that affects families and communities across the nation.

Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. There is strong evidence indicating that adequate prevention can reduce suicide rates.

If you or someone you know is in a crisis or is experiencing difficult or suicidal thoughts, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1 800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255) or through chat available 24/7.
