Suicide is a problem that touches the lives of many Americans. Suicide is among the leading causes of death for adults under age 45 in the United States, and it exacts a huge emotional and economic toll on those left behind.
Reducing the number of suicides requires the engagement and commitment of people in many sectors in and outside of government, including public health, mental health, health care, the armed forces, business, entertainment, media, and education. Learn how the Surgeon General is drawing on suicide prevention experts across the nation to help make Americans aware of the heavy burden suicide imposes on our nation and to facilitate the prevention of suicide and related problems.
