Suicide is a leading cause of death for Americans ― and it’s a tragedy for families and communities across the country.
Statistics published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show an overall increase of 25% in the number of suicides nationally. Closer to home, the rate of suicides in the State of Michigan has increased by nearly 33% between 1999 and 2016!
