CDC Report on Leading Causes of Death, 2017
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.
47,173 Americans died by suicide in 2017.
If you see warning signs that someone is thinking about suicide, reaching out and taking action can make a profound difference for someone who has lost hope. We all can play a role in keeping our loved ones feel safe and supported.
That's why we're kicking off our suicide prevention campaign with a goal of raising $5,000 to support those in need of mental health services.
$35 provides a 15 minute check-in for someone at risk.
$50 provides 30 minutes of outreach by a case manager or peer advocate.
Please support Pacific Asian Counseling Services (PACS), a nonprofit dedicated to working with those affected by mental illness. We believe that people do not have to die by suicide.
$200 provides a psychiatric consultation
