September 5 - 11th.  Let's raise awareness about the issue of suicide.  Learn the signs and symptoms so you can help those in need.

In the U.S., suicide is the second leading cause of death for those 15 - 24 years of age. For all ages, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death while homicide ranks 17th.  So despite all the attention that crime rates receive in the news, suicide should be a much larger concern.

Provident offers training to teach people how to recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide and also how to deal with it.  Please click here
