Untreated Depression and Suicide

"Untreated depression is the number one cause of suicide, and suicide is the third leading cause of death among teenagers". (NIMH)
  • Lee Mental Health does clinical assessments for kids and adults all day and you can just walk in...
  • Over 3800 people called NAMI Lee  information and referral line last year for help with navigating the mental health delivery system, 337-9024.
  • To Write Love On Her Arms is a great resource for students, parents, and teachers and it is my understanding that there is at least one public high school in Lee County and a number of local Colleges that have chapters on campus.
Don't forget.. to get involved join us and the more than 200 people already signed up at FGCU's Children's Mental Health Conference On Nov 17!

Finally, no person ever committed suicide because a caring person was sharing suicide prevention information.
