These “Loss Survivors ” are identified as the close friends and family members that are grieving the death of their loved one. Based upon this research, and with approximately 18 loss survivors for each of the 828 deaths by suicide in 11 Counties of North Texas in 2016, then there were 14,904 “loss survivors”* of suicide in these 11 Counties in 2016, alone .   (*Keeping in mind, that many of these “Loss Survivors” are at high risk for suicide, themselves.) (Latest information available to us for Texas as of May 2, 2019.)
W e continue to see the need for our services as urgent with the growing number of suicide deaths each year. Recent research tells us that our work over the past 50 years has saved thousands of lives. We also see the possibility for having a three-digit number to access our Crisis Hotline (as recommended by the recently released "Report on the National Suicide Hotline Improvement Act of 2018,") as helping us save more lives. This three-digit number will clearly require more trained personnel on our Dallas Crisis Line. We have long dealt with the "stigma" that surrounds suicide, but we are now seeing a movement to understand suicide and to place a higher priority on stopping suicide from occurring at such high rates in our country.
Please join the Greater Dallas Suicide Prevention Coalition* on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 ~ 11:00 AM at the Old Red Museum of Dallas County History & Culture in Downtown Dallas for an important day to raise awareness of the number of lives lost to suicide in North Texas every year.

(*Coalition partners include: Baylor Scott & White; the Dallas Police; the Dallas VA; NAMI North Texas; Garland Police Dept.; American Foundation for Suicide Prevention; the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas; The Senior Source and the Dallas County Commissioner's Court.)

Address: 100 S Houston St, Dallas, TX 75202
