                   IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
    Recognizing that prevention of suicide is a compelling national 
                               priority.

Whereas suicide is one of the most disruptive and tragic events a family and a 
        community can experience, and it occurs at a national rate of 30,000 
        suicides annually;
Whereas suicide is the fastest growing cause of death among youths and the 
        second leading cause of death among college students;
Whereas suicide kills youths 6 to 9 times more often than homicide;
Whereas research shows that 95 percent of all suicides are preventable;
Whereas research shows that the prevention of suicide must be recognized as a 
        national priority;
Whereas community awareness and education will encourage the development of 
        strategies to prevent suicide;
Whereas during the 105th Congress, both the Senate and the House of 
        Representatives unanimously agreed to resolutions recognizing suicide as 
        a national problem and declaring suicide prevention programs to be a 
        national priority (Senate Resolution 84, 105th Congress, agreed to May 
        6, 1997, and House of Representatives Resolution 212, 105th Congress, 
        agreed to October 9, 1998);
Whereas the yellow ribbon is rapidly becoming recognized internationally as the 
        symbol for the awareness and prevention of suicide, and it is recognized 
        and used by suicide prevention groups, crisis centers, schools, 
        churches, youth centers, hospitals, counselors, teachers, parents, and 
        especially youth themselves; and
Whereas the week beginning September 19, 2004, should be recognized as Yellow 
        Ribbon Suicide Awareness and Prevention Week: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That Congress--
            (1) recognizes that the need to increase awareness about 
        and prevent suicide is a compelling national priority;
            (2) reaffirms the commitment of Congress to the priorities 
        expressed by the 105th Congress, in Senate Resolution 84 and 
        House Resolution 212, to continue to recognize suicide 
        prevention as a national priority; and
            (3) encourages Americans, communities, and the Nation to 
        work to increase awareness about and prevent suicide.
                                 <all>
