National Suicide Prevention Month
 September is National Suicide Prevention Month. This month is recognized by many mental health advocates, organizations, survivors, and community members to unite and promote suicide prevention and awareness. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, suicide is the second leading cause of death among people aged 10-34. September is designated the month to share resources and educate individuals, friends, and families to shed light on this critical public health issue.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S., and the overall suicide rate has increased by 31% since 2001. Furthermore, more than twice as many people die from suicide as from homicide. From 1999 to 2016, rates of suicide rose in nearly every state, and Texas experienced an 18.9 percent increase during that period. Due to these alarming statistics it is important to understand the issues concerning suicide and mental health, to take part in suicide prevention, and to change the conversation around suicide.  Read the full article.
