Suicide Prevention Month

CYN Counseling Center intends to put an end to deaths by suicide & provide lasting hope.

 

Did You Know?

  • Last year, Lake County alone saw a 12% increase in attempts at suicide, and that number taunts us with the potential to grow
  • Deaths by Suicide outnumber homicide in Lake County more than 3 to 1
  • Men are significantly more likely to die by suicide than women, thought women statistically have more attempts than men.
  • Nationally for ages 10 to 17, suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for males  and the 2nd leading cause of death for females
  • Veteran death by suicide rate has increased 6.3%, with the majority having never seen combat
CYN has designed an expansive program based on community collaboration and education to serve the most at-risk lives in our area.
