Suicide is preventable

Even so, each year Kentucky loses over 600 people to suicide. To help reduce these deaths, the Kentucky Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities (BH/DID) invited various community leaders to establish the Kentucky Suicide Prevention Group in 2002, to help decrease suicide deaths and attempts across the Commonwealth through advocacy, education, training and evaluation.
