Growing Concern Over Rising Suicide Rates

A disturbing trend has been noticed across the country. According to the Centers for Disease Control the number of suicides has risen at a noticeable percentage. 13 people out of every 100,000 ended their own lives in 2014. In comparison to 1999 when it was 10.5 people per 100,000. It is an increase that affects almost all age groups, races, and genders.

Veterans organizations across the country have been sounding the alarm about soldiers returning from overseas taking their lives in alarming numbers. It can be especially tough after the loss of a loved one. Grief and healing counseling has been known to help prevent some from giving up. In an effort to help those that need it Ratterman Brothers Funeral Homes is offering grief and healing counseling for free to those who have lost a loved one. There are online counseling services, join in group grief support, or watch our interactive videos. The online services can be accessed anytime, 24/7.
