Suicide Prevention Awareness
For those who have experienced losing someone to suicide or those who have sought treatment for suicidal thoughts or actions, prevention and awareness are incredibly important. The CDC reported in 2010 that suicide was the tenth leading cause of death in America. Some but not all people are at greater risk of having suicidal thoughts because of mental disorders like depression, bipolar disorder, alcohol or substance abuse as well as having a serious medical condition or having a family history of attempted or completed suicide. In recent years, being bullied has also been a contributing factor. No matter what the circumstance, though, these people are loved and cared about but they may not realize it.
