Suicide Prevention

Suicide is a serious public health crisis that causes significant pain, suffering and loss to individuals, families and communities. Sadly, it is also one of the leading causes of death in children and adolescents. People may think about ending their lives when they are depressed or feel hopeless. However, there can be other triggers for suicidal thoughts and actions, such as breaking up with a partner, failing in school, being bullied or experiencing abuse, loss or other trauma.
