About Suicide

Information is one of our greatest assets in the cause of suicide prevention. Here we hope to provide general information about suicide and its effects on certain segments of the population, as well as its frequency within the state of Tennessee over the course of several years.

Our sources include the World Health Organization, the Office of the Surgeon General, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, the American Association of Suicidology, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the Tennessee Department of Health, the National Organization for People of Color Against Suicide, the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, and various publications in the fields of suicidology, psychology and mental health.
