National Suicide Prevention Week- Boulder Counseling News Post

2981762849_5bbd0bd4ff_mBOULDER COUNSELING NEWS POST!

It is National Suicide Prevention Week. It is known that “every year, over 800,000 almost people die from suicide; this roughly corresponds to one death every 40 seconds. The number of lives lost each year through suicide exceeds the number of deaths due to homicide and war combined” (Source: http://www.iasp.info/wspd/pdf/2014/2014_wspd_brochure.pdf). I wanted to provide you some resources, as many of us know someone who has attempted or committed suicide, or you may have contemplated it yourself. Please share these links with those who may need support.
