Florida's Pain


In 2002, more than 2,300 Floridians were reported as dying by suicide. Tragically, this number ranks Florida second in the highest number of suicides reported nationally, according to the Florida Suicide Prevention Coalition, a nonprofit statewide suicide prevention organization.

The problem is being countered by this and other state and private help groups. An excellent online resource for information on coping and preventive strategies, emergency help and counseling is maintained by the Florida Office of Drug Control at http://www.myflorida.com/myflorida/government/governorinitiatives/
