According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is one death by suicide in the US every 13 minutes. It is the 10th leading cause of death in America; homicide ranks 16th. It is the second leading cause of death for 15 to 24-year-olds.

I was so moved by the strangers who were trying to save the actors. So many different lessons can be taken away from this video. Share with friends and family members. You never know who may be in need of help.
