World Suicide Prevention Day Is Monday


Monday is World Suicide Prevention Day.

According to the WHO’s first global report on suicide prevention, more than 800,000 people die by suicide every year; that’s about one person every 40 seconds.

In the United States, suicide rates have gone up 25 percent in the last 20 years.

Earlier this summer, there were two high-profile suicides– fashion icon Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 800-273-TALK. 

The Helpline Center is South Dakota’s leading suicide prevention and response resource.
