Every day, about 3,000 people worldwide die by suicide – including 125 in the United States and 10 in Canada.
Each of those deaths rips a gaping hole in loved ones’ hearts, and sends shock waves of grief – and sometimes disbelief and shame – through families and communities.
Yet, those numbers are the tip of the iceberg: For every suicide, an estimated 20 other people who suffer from depression, anxiety or other forms of psychiatric and psychological pain attempt to end their lives.
The relentless cascade of death and self-harm goes largely unnoticed – except when someone famous takes their own life.
