As Montanans, we like to be first. But not when it comes to our staggering suicide rate. Sadly, 24 out of every 100,000 people here in Montana will die by suicide each year. And 25 percent of young people have thought about taking their own lives. Remember, at the first sign of concern, reach out to them, then reach out for help. To help you help the ones you love, we’re providing resources and connecting you to our partners in this effort to help change the narrative in Montana.
