Suicidal ideation is much more common than you might think. 

 

A recent survey by the CDC indicated that 11% of adults in America have contemplated suicide in just the last few months (study performed July 2020). But thinking about suicide is very different than acting on it… completion of suicide is highly preventable. 

 

There are ways we can all do our part to help support the necessary change in our communities. By encouraging acceptance and awareness of how mental illness impacts all of us (statistics are now close to 1 in 3 people who will suffer at some point in their life with mental illness) there will be more openness and dialogue, making it more likely that people will feel comfortable reaching out and getting the mental health support that they deserve. 

 

Together, let’s obliterate shame and stigma, helping to shift the culture toward acceptance, empathy and understanding.
