Every 13 minutes someone dies by suicide. Suicide does not discriminate, affecting people of all genders, ages, and ethnicities with many different factors that may contribute to someone making a suicide attempt, depression being one of the lead reasons. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for 10 to 34 year olds, and 5th for 35 to 44 year olds in Maryland.
Through the No Matter What…You Matter campaign, For All Seasons and their partners aim to amplify the conversation about suicide prevention and its link to mental health, as well as teach the signs and symptoms associated with suicide. Because family and friends are often the first to recognize the warning signs of suicide, they can be critical in helping an individual find treatment with someone who specializes in diagnosing and treating mental health conditions.
