Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States—claiming one life every 13 minutes—and the second leading cause of death for young people (aged 15 to 34).
If you need to talk with someone due to emotional distress or suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (it is confidential). You will be routed to a crisis center in your area.
