Today, Mission Kids recognizes World Suicide Prevention Day, as a time to acknowledge those affected by suicide, raise awareness, and connect individuals to treatment services.

According to the CDC, each year more than 41,000 individuals die by suicide, leaving behind friends and family members to navigate the tragedy of their loss.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death among adults in the U.S. and the 2nd leading cause of death among people aged 10-24 and these rates are increasing.
