It is estimated that an attempt is made every 38 seconds, with over one million people attempting suicide annually. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for ages 1-44 and the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S. among adults 44-59. Veterans comprise 18% of all suicides! A survey of more than 4,000 first responders found that 6.6 percent had attempted suicide, which is more than 10 times the rate in the general population! This is a public health issue that does not discriminate by age, gender, ethnicity, or socio-economic status.
