With World Suicide Prevention Day being September 10, 2016, let's take a moment to be aware of the facts, especially as they relate to seniors.
The senior population in the United states has the highest rate of suicide compared to other age groups. The statistics may be even higher due to:
The most common cause for suicide is untreated depression
Americans age 65+ commit suicide at higher rates than any other age group
If you or someone you love is experiencing any of the above, then it's time to speak up. There is no shame in sharing your struggle.
