According to the Suicide Prevention Resource Center:
When a person dies by suicide, many others are deeply affected:
One study estimated that 115 people are exposed to each suicide with 1 in 5 reporting that this experience had a devastating impact or caused a major life disruption.
Exposure to suicide can lead to an array of negative outcomes, including mental health issues, social isolation, and an increased risk of suicide.
If you are in crisis, please call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
