    Suicide Prevention

    Suicide claims the lives of over 2,000 Pennsylvanians each year, according to the latest CDC statistics. At the time of their deaths, the majority of people who die by suicide have a diagnosable and treatable mental illness. Medication and therapy can be very effective in treating depression.

    Visit Prevent Suicide PA's website to take a screening to see if you are at risk, learn warning signs, and find out how you can help.

    If you’re thinking about suicide or worried about a friend or loved one, call the National Suicide Prevention Line 1-800-273-8255.
