Suicide Prevention & Awareness​

This website is designed to be used by the Suicide Prevention Coordinating Council, school personnel, state agencies, community members, faith-based organizations, employers, and others as a resource for suicide prevention.

Florida is renowned nationally and internationally as a place to enjoy life. A leading destination of vacationers, retirees, and people seeking to build a better life for themselves, our state can be justly proud of its reputation for natural beauty, security, prosperity, opportunity, and a pleasant lifestyle. Despite these benefits, each year over two thousand of Florida's citizens take their own lives. This number is more than twice the number of people murdered and significantly higher than the number of HIV related deaths. Florida ranks second in the nation for the highest number of suicide fatalities and has the 13th highest suicide rate. Suicide is the state's 10th leading cause of death.
