Infographic: Suicide Notes
As Suicide Prevention week comes to a close, we wanted to share this infographic on the impact of suicide in the US, courtesy of the Social Work Degree Center.
We hope that in this past week millions of people have been exposed to the facts, statistics, stories, and impact that suicide has on individuals and communities worldwide, and that they came away with a better understanding of this public health crisis. Greater education on this topic will hopefully bring about a reduction in the stigma surrounding mental illness and suicide, ultimately resulting in more people seeking and receiving help.
