Suicide is a serious and preventable public health issue. The number of Americans who die by suicide is more than double the number who die by homicide. As individuals and communities, we can prevent suicide if everyone plays a role.
As we observe National Suicide Prevention Week 2014, we join together around the power of prevention. We know that suicides are preventable, treatment is available and effective, and individuals can recover from mental health problems.
