Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S dies by suicide. Almost 200 people die by suicide each day. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, 2nd among teenagers. Every year, 44, 193 people die by suicide each year, most of which are between the ages of 10-29. 494, 169 people are admitted to a hospital due to self-harm incidents.
Stop the hate. Stop the bullying. Stop the stigma around mental illnesses. Stop brushing mental un-wellness off because it isn’t physical.
