Su***de is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. In recent years, the rates of su***de have increased by 33%. Su***de can affect anyone of all ages, genders, and ethnicities. Recent data showed that more than 47,500 people died by su***de in 2019 and 12 million people thought seriously about su***de.

Participating in pro-social activities and surrounding yourself with positive, healthy relationships are just a few of the many practices that can help reduce depression and su***de rates.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, contact the National Su***de Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK

In 2019, it was reported that 13.2% of teens in Dauphin County consume alcohol regularly. Alcohol is detrimental for anyone’s health, but especially for those who are under the age of 21. When alcohol is introduced to an undeveloped brain and organs, it can drastically delay or change the way those organs develop.

Today is National Grief Awareness Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness of the various ways individuals cope with loss.

A few ways to support #NationalGriefAwarenessDay is to support a grieving friend, engage in self-care, and post about it online to help reach more individuals who may be experiencing grief.

Instead of engaging in unhealthy or negative coping behaviors such as substance abuse, we encourage you to embrace healthy coping behaviors such as exercising, listening to music, and talking with a friend.

What are some of your favorite healthy coping behaviors?
