Mental Health Awareness Month - Week 1

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This week we want to highlight some information regarding Suicide Prevention. In 2020, suicide was responsible for nearly 46,000 deaths, or once every 11 minutes.

Some of the highest demographics include:

  • Men over age 85 - highest suicide rate for all demographics
  • American Indian and Alaska Natives
  • Veterans
  • Loss and Disaster Survivors

We are providing some resources to help you with your patients. As a reminder, July of 2022 the Suicide Prevention Hotline was changed to 988.
