Column: In suicide prevention, stigma and silence need to give way to support

We don’t like to talk about suicide. However, more than 40,000 Americans die each year due to suicide, which currently is the 10th leading cause of death in our nation. Locally, there were 71 completed suicides in Adams County. 

You’d think we would be more open to talking about something that is affecting our nation, our local communities and our families and friends in such a big way.
