Raising awareness can help prevent suicide

As co-chair for the Congressional Spouses for Suicide Education and Prevention, I wanted to write to remind Alaskans that this is both national suicide prevention week as well as suicide prevention month at the National Military Family Association. Suicide claims the lives of over 39,000 individuals annually and is the 10th leading cause of premature death in our country. Many of those who die are suffering from treatable depression and other diseases. Alarmingly Alaska has one of the highest rates in the nation of suicides per capita.
