"Suicide deaths in the U.S. reached a record high in 2017. Over 47,000 people died by suicide -- about 14 people for every 100,000. All our cumulative prevention efforts of the last 40 years failed to turn downward the ever-increasing number of suicide deaths!
"In a recent video, Presiding Bishop Eaton challenged the ELCA to 'break the silence' surrounding suicide. It is time for the silence to end!"
