Although there is no single cause to suicide, suicide is a major public health concern. Over 47,000 people died by suicide in the United States in 2017; it is the 10th leading cause of death overall. Suicide is complicated and tragic, but it is often preventable. Knowing the warning signs for suicide and how to get help can help save lives. It most often occurs when stressors exceed current coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition. Our guest today is a suicide survivor and speaks openly about this difficult topic.
