Suicide Prevention: Shatter the Silence


Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death among young people ages 10-24 in Mississippi.

Shatter the Silence is a campaign of the Mississippi Department of Mental Health to encourage young people to talk through their feelings with friends and trusted adults, and to also encourage those friends to show their concern and support. By working together, we can help those in need to realize it’s OK to reach out for help.

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK 1-800-273-8255
