Anger - Facts

While anger is a normal human emotion, ongoing impulsive anger often leads to massive, sometimes irrevocable, problems in interpersonal relationships, work and on general quality of life.People that have difficulty managing anger are susceptible to road rage, verbal, and physical violence.

Key statistics from the anger management report are:

     • Sixty-four percent say that the world is becoming an angrier place.

     • Almost a third of people polled (32%) say they have a close friend or family member who has trouble 

        controlling their anger.

     • More than one in ten (12%) say that they have trouble controlling their own anger.

     • More than one in four people (28%) say that they worry about how angry they sometimes feel.

     • One in five of people (20%) say that they have ended a relationship or friendship with someone because of

        how they behaved when they were angry.

     • Fewer than one in seven (13%) of those people who say they have trouble controlling their anger have sought

        help for their anger problems.

     • 58% of people wouldn’t know where to seek help if they needed help with an anger problem.

Suicide Awareness - Facts

Suicide prevention starts with recognizing the warning signs and taking them seriously. If you think a friend or family member is considering suicide, there’s plenty you can do to help save a life.


Suicide Statistics:

* Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US for all ages. 

* Every day, approximately 123 Americans die by suicide. 

* There is one death by suicide in the US every 12 minutes. 

* Depression affects 20-25% of Americans ages 18+ in a given year. 

* Suicide takes the lives of over 44,965 Americans every year. 

* There is one suicide for every estimated 25 suicide attempts.

Almost everyone who attempts suicide has given some clue or warning. Don’t ignore even indirect references to death or suicide. As part of our suicide attention and prevention class, we bring an awareness of suicide, leading factors, and general prevention methods to help you use.

 

We can all help prevent suicide.
