Where is
Comfort Zone Camp Being Held?
Suicide (i.e., taking one's own life) is a serious public health problem that affects even young people. For youth between the ages of 10 and 24, suicide is the
leading cause of death. It results in approximately 4600 lives lost each year in the United States. Deaths from youth suicide are only part of the problem. More young people survive suicide attempts than actually die. In 2011, the Massachusetts Youth Risk Behavior Survey reported that 13% of students seriously considered suicide during the past year, 12% made a plan and 7% made an attempt. As a result, the Massachusetts Suicide Prevention Program supports many efforts to reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts among young people in Massachusetts.
