Summary

Despite​​ ​​numerous​​ ​​attempts​​ ​​at​​ ​​preventing​​ ​​suicide,​​ ​​high​​-achievement​​ ​​communities​​ ​​are​ ​still​​ ​​struggling​​ ​​to​​ ​​design​ ​programs​​ ​​that​​ ​​are​​ ​​effective​​ ​​at​​ ​​preventing​​ ​​these​​ ​​deaths.​​ This​​ ​​problem​​ ​​has​ ​negatively​​ ​​impacted​​ ​​both​​ ​​​individuals​ and communities at large, since​​ ​​people​​ ​​are​​ ​​still​​ ​​suffering​​ ​​with​​ ​​mental​​ ​​health​ ​issues​​ ​​and​​ ​​don’t​​ ​​know​​ ​​where​​ ​​to​​ ​seek​ ​affordable​​ ​​counseling​​ ​​and​​ ​​mental​​ ​​health​​ ​​services.​​ ​​Perhaps​​ ​​exploring​ ​past​​ ​​suicide​​ ​​data,​​ ​​and​​ ​​the​​ ​​mental​​ ​​health​ ​programs​​ ​​in​​ ​​those​​ ​​impacted​​ ​​communities​, can​​ ​​point the way to​​ ​​a​​ ​​possible​ ​remedy​​ ​​for​​ ​​this​​ ​​problem.
