2019 2nd Annual Gala – Illuminate a Child’s Life

Suicide is considered one of the leading causes of death in the US. Approximately 123 Americans die by suicide every day translating to one death every 12 minutes. In 2016, the suicide rate had hit a 30-year high and the rate has continued to increase. In particular, Asian American college students have a higher rate of suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts than the Caucasian population. These students need to be heard and given an opportunity to share their story, so they can receive help and begin to heal.
