What's Happening at Precious Life?
Today, too many people of all ages needlessly take their
own lives. On average, almost 3000 people commit suicide
every day. Every 30 seconds, the loss of a person who
killed themselves shatters the lives of family and friends.

For every person who completes a suicide, 20 or more may
attempt suicide. For family and friends affected by suicide
or attempted suicide, the emotional impact may last for
many years.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young
people between 10 to 24. Sometimes your struggle can be
underestimated because of your age. But we hear you, and
help is available.

Deaths from suicide are only part of the problem. More
people survive suicide attempts than actually die.
Several factors can put a person at risk for suicide. However, having these risk factors does not always mean that suicide will
occur. Some of the risk factors researchers identified include:

  • History of previous suicide attempts
  • Family history of suicide
  • History of depression or other mental illness
  • History of alcohol or drug abuse
  • Stressful life event or loss
  • Easy access to lethal methods
  • Exposure to the suicidal behavior of others

Protective factors buffer individuals from suicidal thoughts and behavior. Some of the protective factors researchers identified
include, but are not limited to: Skills in problem solving, conflict resolution, and nonviolent ways of handling disputes, effective
clinical care for mental, physical, and substance abuse disorders, easy access to various clinical interventions and support for
help seeking family and community support (connectedness), support from ongoing medical and mental health care
relationships and cultural beliefs that discourage suicide and support instincts for self-preservation, including seeking help

Most people are uncomfortable with the topic of suicide. Too often, victims are blamed and their families and friends are left
stigmatized. As a result, people do not communicate openly about suicide. Thus, an important public health problem is left
shrouded in secrecy, which limits the amount of information available to those working to prevent suicidal behavior
