Press Release: for Immediate Release
An international emergency suicidal hotline based out of Las Vegas, Nevada that has been operational since January 2006, which normally would receive between: 4 to 5 calls each day, now only receives only 1 to 2 calls per week. This trend began in November 2014 with the web release of emerging suicidal self-help procedures.
- Website visitors to Intl. Suicide Prevention increased over 10,000%, and has held steady for the first year at over 6,000 visitors per month.
- Suicide hotline calls to Intl. Suicide Prevention dropped 88% after ‘4 Phase’ procedure was posted on website.
This development, a new method of addressing mental illness, is equivalent to a statement telegraphed by the Wright Brothers proclaiming that they’d accomplished the impossible, the first powered flight, in the midst of a subsequent lack of interest by the mainstream media.
Over 200+ people per day receiving help would seem like a great accomplishment, but not according to statistics:
- 100 to 200 people per day in the USA alone commit suicide each day
- For each suicide, there are approximately 23 attempted suicides
