In the United States, suicide is the second leading cause of death for people ages 10-14 and 25-34.

In 2020, an estimated 12.2 million U.S. adults seriously thought about suicide, 3.2 planned a suicide attempt, and 1.2 million attempted suicide.

Over the last 20 years, the suicide rate has increased 35%.

Nearly 4 times as many adults report experiencing depressive symptoms than before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Even though most of these deaths are preventable, on average, one Marylander dies of suicide every 13 hours.

In 2021, one in five Maryland Mid-Shore teens ages 14-17 report seriously considering attempting suicide
