Suicide


What is Suicide?

Suicide is the second leading cause of death (following motor vehicle accidents) among teenagers and young adults. Young people often feel pressure to succeed at school, at home and in social groups. They may lack the life experience that lets them know that difficult situations will not last forever. In case of emergency, visit your local hospital or call 911.
