SAVE is one of the nation's first organizations dedicated to the prevention of suicide. It was founded on the belief that suicide is a preventable tragedy, and that each and every individual plays a crucial role in the effort to prevent it. SAVE utilizes the latest and most reliable evidence to develop educational programming for youth and young adults, conduct training for professionals across a wide array of industries, and support those who have experienced the devastating loss of a loved one due to suicide.

The facts: Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States and a serious public health concern. In 2022, we lost over 49,000 Americans to suicide. That's one suicide death nearly every 11 minutes. The number of individuals who think or attempt suicide is much, much higher. It's estimated nearly 12.3 million people think about suicide, 3.5 million make a plan, and 1.7 million attempt suicide.
