Suicide awareness and prevention
Suicide is a growing problem in the nation. Since 2008 in Palm Bay there have been 43 suicide deaths and 29 suicide attempts. Our goal is to break the seal of silence and get people the help they need before it's too late.
Statistics show for every one person that commits the act of suicide, at least six other lives are impacted.
