Suicide has touched most people somehow, perhaps a loved one or a friend. What is scary is that in age groups 15-24 and 25-34, suicide is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Even more sad is for kids between the ages of 10-14, it is the third leading cause of death. For our valuable veterans, we are losing them to suicide at a rate of 22 souls a day.
Stay in the loop!
