Donate to Help Prevent Teen Suicide
Teen suicide and teen mental health is a public health emergency that afflicts youth in every socioeconomic sector. According to the most recent statistics from the CDC, suicide is the number one leading cause of death in children ages 10-14 and the second leading cause of death in young people aged 15-24.
In addition, on average, 575,000 teens attempt suicide each year. In recent CDC surveys of high school students, 20 percent of the teens said that in the last 12 months that they thought often of suicide, 14 percent say they have made a plan for suicide, and nine percent reported that they had made one or more suicide attempts in the last year.
Because of your support and generosity, the Matthew Silverman Memorial Foundation vets and delivers the nation's best evidence-based prevention and teen mental health education to middle schools, high schools and colleges, free-of-charge. These lifeline programs touch thousands of students, their parents and teachers each year. MSMF programs help save lives and are changing the conversation about teen mental health. Every dollar you give makes a difference.
