Every Day - DAY 25

Suicide is not someone else's problem. Fighting Stigma, creating awareness, and working towards more effective prevention is a job that belongs to all of us.

Every day, aproximately 123 Americans die by suicide.

When you see the current statistics, you will see the urgency. Suicide prevention is work that we must be doing, every day.
