Death by suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among young people between the ages of 10-34 in the United States, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. The foundation estimates approximately 45,000 Americans die by suicide each year — that’s an average of 123 suicides per day. These numbers, however, are thought to be much higher.
As part of UpStreet, a teen mental health drop-in center – teachers, kids, and parents are invited to learn more about teen suicide prevention with Erin Barr (UpStreet Clinical Coordinator), and Stephanie Rodriguez and Alliyah Kimbrough (UpStreet Therapists).
