Suicide Prevention - Take the PREVENTS Pledge to REACH

Suicide Prevention - Take the PREVENTS Pledge to REACH

Research shows that for every suicide, 135 people are personally affected – families, friends, co-workers, and community members – which means in one year, up to 6.3 million people are directly affected by suicide. Suicide prevention is a national public health challenge, and everyone has a role to play.

On January 13, 2021, the Deputy Under Secretary for Management signed the PREVENTS Pledge to Reach and support suicide prevention. All DHS employees are encouraged to take this pledge and make a commitment to increase awareness of mental health issues in general and prevent suicide for all Americans.
