In the United States, a person dies by suicide every 15 minutes, claiming more than 38,000 lives each year.
It is estimated that an attempt is made every minute, with close to one
million people attempting suicide annually. Suicide is the fourth
leading cause of death in the U.S. among adults 18-65, the second
leading cause of death among teens and young adults, and individuals
ages 65 and older account for 16 percent of all suicide deaths. This is a
public health issue that does not discriminate by age, gender,
ethnicity, or socio-economic status.
