THE STORY:

Autism - Just a cloud- The Cloud of Children wrote -

Over 34,000 people in the United States die by suicide every year.

In the year 2000, approximately one million people died of suicide. This represents a global mortality rate of 16 per 100,000 or one death every 40 seconds.

Over 60 percent of all people who die by suicide suffer from major depression. If one includes alcoholics who are depressed, this figure rises to over 75 percent.
