Face of suicide changing in county
Kelly Strand remembers the details of the day her mother died as though it were yesterday – the phone ringing, the tone of her aunt’s voice, shock and overwhelming grief.
“My aunt said, ‘Kelly, honey,’ and I knew it was bad,” Strand said. “I [learned] my mother had just killed herself. I just wept and cried out to God.”
The latest data from the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that someone in the U.S. commits suicide every 14 minutes. More than four times an hour, another family, just like Strand’s, is left to make sense of the loss of a loved one.
