Suicide Prevention, Support, Awareness

According to the World Health Organization, suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. 
Factors that contribute to suicide are complex and may include mental illness and histories of trauma and abuse.

Those with histories of exposure to violence such as sexual or physical abuse, bullying, and military combat exposure also have higher rates of suicide than the average population. Social factors such as financial distress, social compromise, and economic collapse may also contribute to risk factors for suicide as can chronic health conditions, acute stressors, and relationship loss. Persons with a history of mental illness, a history of past attempts, or a history of psychiatric hospitalizations may also be more likely to attempt and complete suicide. Suicide is also more common in those that experienced various kinds of trauma in childhood, such as those with elevated ACES scores.
