Suicide Prevention

Suicides have greatly impacted America. In the United States, more than 47,000 people died by suicide in 2017. In York County, we had a total of 86 suicide in 2017. Most suicides are preventable, so knowing the warning signs and risk factors for suicide is one of the most important ways we can educate ourselves and others, so we know when someone might need help.
