We know that every day, people are helping themselves and others get through their darkest moments.
The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention and the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (formerly known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) know it is possible to reduce deaths from suicide like we have reduced heart disease fatalities and other leading causes of death. For every person who dies by suicide annually, there are another 316 people who have thought seriously about suicide who don’t kill themselves, and nearly 60 who have survived a suicide attempt. The overwhelming majority of these individuals will go on to live out their lives. These untold stories of hope and recovery are the stories of suicide prevention, stories that inform the Lifeline and the Action Alliance’s efforts to prevent more suicides every day.
