My Loud Whispers of Hope

Suicide:

  • Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S.
  • Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for people aged 10ā€“24.
  • Suicide is the 2ndĀ leading cause of death for people aged 15ā€“24.
  • More than 90% of children who die by suicide have a mental health condition.
  • Each day an estimated 18-22 veterans die by suicide.

This is horrific and breaks my heart. We MUST do something about this NOW.


I will be posting something important about mental illness every day throughout the month of May on my blog in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.

PleaseĀ keep visitingĀ my blog My Loud Bipolar Whispers and look for statistics or other beneficialĀ information related to mental illness to increase awareness, educate, reduce mental illness stigma and reduce suicides.

It is crucial and imperative for all of us to get involvedĀ and save lives.

So, please visit myā€¦
