They will answer viewers’ questions about recently released data from the CDC on suicide deaths for the year 2021 and what the new numbers tell us. From the increase in overall rates of suicide to disparities between different groups and ages, viewers will gain an understanding of what may be affecting the changing rates of suicide deaths, and how we can all play a role in preventing this leading cause of death.
