Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for people ages 10-34 and the 4th leading cause of death for people 35-54. The overall suicide rate in the U.S. has increased by 31% since 2001.
When someone says he or she is thinking about suicide, or says things that sound as if the person is considering suicide, it can be very upsetting. You may not be sure what to do to help, whether you should take talk of suicide seriously, or if your intervention might make the situation worse. Taking action is always the best choice. Here's what to do.

How a former teacher created a help-house for women escaping sex trafficking
Anne Haines, a mother of six adult children and a former Catholic school teacher, is moving to a new home next month. She'll be getting at least six new roommates, all either survivors of sex trafficking or other women trying to help them. This doesn't bother her though, it's a chance to live out a decades-old dream. Haines is moving into the newly-established St. Bakhita Catholic Worker House on North 2nd St. in Milwaukee's Harambee neighborhood.
