Suicides in Lake County outnumber Homicides over 3 to 1. Each year, 60 individuals in Lake County die of Suicide. This fact is not known by the general public.  We at the Lake County Coroner's Office believe that suicide is preventable by raising awareness.

Suicide affects all races and ethnicities, all socioeconomic groups, and individuals, from youths to seniors. For every Suicide, an estimated 8 to 10 lives are severely impacted. For every Suicide, an estimated 18 attempts have been made.

Should you know anyone who is at risk of suicide, please share these resources with them and urge them to get help. By working together, we hope to save the lives of those in need.
