Suicide kills many people every year. In 2013, more than 41,000 deaths by suicide were reported in the US.

Suicide has warning signs and can be prevented. Warning signs include:

- A person talking about taking his life away or how his life is useless

- Isolation from family, friends and social life

- Searching for ways to end their lives

- Other signs and symptoms of depression

If you are experiencing these signs and thoughts or you know someone who is, visit a mental health specialist NOW! 

Suicide is preventable. Save your life and the lives of those around you.
