September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health joins other individuals and organizations to promote awareness and combat the stigma associated with this tragic loss of life.
“Talking openly about suicide and mental health eliminates the stigma that prevents many individuals from asking for help,” said Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical/Medical Officer Yolanda Graham, M.D. “We must continue this conversation - not only during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, but all year long - so those in crisis are not afraid or ashamed to seek the services and support they need. No one should suffer in silence.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that suicide rates in the United States have increased by 30 percent since 1999. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death, and the second leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 34.
In addition, data from the CDC’s 2017 National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) shows that 17.2 percent of high school students “seriously considered attempting suicide,” and 13.6 percent of high school students made a plan for how they would attempt suicide.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. Read this Harrisburg Magazine article featuring Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical/Medical Officer Dr. Yolanda Graham on Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.
