Taking action to prevent suicide
Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States. The most recent full-year CDC data for 2019 reflects suicide as the tenth leading cause of death overall, claiming over 47,500 US lives; the second leading cause of death for individuals aged 10-34; and the fourth leading cause of death for individuals aged 35-44.[1] The rate of suicide in the US has increased 32.4% from 1999 to 2019.[1]

Impacts from COVID-19 have contributed to suicidal ideation in the US more than doubling, with younger adults, racial/ethnic minorities, essential workers and unpaid adult caregivers experiencing disproportionately worse effects.[2]
