In the United States a person dies by suicide every 13.3 minutes, claiming more than 39,500 lives each year. It is estimated that an attempt is made every minute, with close to one million people attempting suicide annually. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death in adults and the second leading cause of death in teens. AFSP walks help fund research aimed at improving our understanding of suicide and ways to prevent it, as well as educational programs to increase awareness about prevention, warning signs and the psychiatric illnesses that can lead to suicide.
The LoveSami.org website was established in memory of Sami Coburn. Sami tragically took her life in 2014 after struggling with severe anxiety and being placed on anti-depressants. Sami touched the lives of many and has left the world a better place for having loved and been loved by so many. Love Sami Organization intends to emulate the life that Sami lived. Love Sami Organization is dedicated to suicide awareness, advocacy and prevention. Suicide leaves behind a wake of sadness and tragedy for the survivors, family, friends and loved ones. Love Sami Organization hopes to be able to reach out to survivors so they can learn that there are resources out there for help and support. You are never alone.
