National Suicide Prevention Week is this week and PRG is working with mental health professionals to help provide support and combat the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. You heard me, the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. I don’t know about you but I find that statistic staggering. Mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, and even counselors dedicate their lives to helping individuals cope with mental health issues i.e., depression and anxiety. So why are so many people committing suicide? Is it the lack of accessibility to health care providers? Is it the fact that mental health issues can be a taboo topic in today’s society?
Regardless of why suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, something needs to be done. In many situations, suicidal thoughts are often a component of depression or another mental ailment. Physicians Research Group along with leading professionals at Metropolitan Neuro Behavioral Institute are helping to identify new treatments that can potentially help patients with depression and suicidal thoughts. The ultimate goal is to identify a treatment that may help a significant number of individuals and turn the suicide rate around. With your help, we can help others suffering from the debilitating effects of depression that often lead to suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
