                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
Expressing the sense of the Congress that raising awareness and working 
     to prevent suicide in the United States are worthy goals, and 
 supporting the goals and ideals of National Survivors of Suicide Day, 
         observed annually on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

Whereas more than 29,000 people commit suicide each year in the United States, 
        and suicide represents the 11th leading cause of death in the United 
        States;
Whereas according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, each time a 
        person commits suicide, at least 6 survivors, including the family, 
        friends, and coworkers of the victim, are intimately affected by the 
        terrible loss;
Whereas the causes of suicide are diverse and complex, and efforts to understand 
        and prevent suicide and to address depression must include promoting 
        awareness and providing treatment; and
Whereas National Survivors of Suicide Day, observed annually on the Saturday 
        before Thanksgiving, provides survivors of suicide nationwide with an 
        opportunity to connect with each other and facilitate the grieving and 
        healing process, and provides an opportunity to promote awareness of 
        suicide among the people of the United States: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) National Survivors of Suicide Day provides a special 
        opportunity to educate the people of the United States about 
        suicide and to work to prevent suicide;
            (2) it is appropriate to mourn the 29,000 victims of 
        suicide each year and to praise the courage and strength of the 
        surviving loved ones of a victim of suicide;
            (3) national and community organizations and private sector 
        supporters should be recognized and applauded for their work in 
        promoting awareness of suicide and providing treatment for 
        depression;
            (4) national and community organizations and private sector 
        supporters should be urged to continue to promote awareness of 
        suicide and depression and to work to decrease the incidence of 
        suicide attempts; and
            (5) Congress supports the goals and ideals of National 
        Survivors of Suicide Day.
