National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
suicide is the third leading cause of death of adolescents between the
ages of 15-24. There is one completed suicide every 15 minutes in the
United States--100 per day, 34,000 per year. Hillsborough has
experienced a statistically significant number of confirmed suicides
over the last 15 years.
Township Public Schools actively educates students about suicide in an
age-appropriate manner, but the issue is broader than our schools. We
must bring education and awareness to the community at large. BoroSAFE's
(Suicide Awareness For Everyone) goal is to raise community awareness
that suicide is preventable and resources are available.
2016 has been designated as A Year Of Gratitude in Hillsborough
