Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States among all age groups.

It is the second leading cause of death of people ages 10 to 34 years old in our nation. The only thing above suicide is the broad category of unintentional injury.

Each year around 43,000 Americans die because of suicide.

One in every twenty-five suicide attempts ends in death.

Suicide costs the United States forty-four billion dollars annually.

There are an average of 117 suicides per day in the United States.

There are around 75,000 suicide attempts globally each day. More than 800,000 people die to suicide each year. Please help us in our fight against the stigmas of mental illness and depression, and our goal to lower suicide rates around the globe.

Suicide is preventable.
