Why does YLC exist?

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that “someone, somewhere in the world dies by suicide every 40 seconds.”

“One million people die by suicide every year and for every suicide there are over 22 attempts.”

This is why YLC exists.

In 2014 the WHO announced there is a global imperative to prevent suicide.

Your Life Counts aligns with the World Health Organization in playing a key role in the global imperative.
