Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. As hard as it is to believe, it's true. The fact is one death by suicide, is one to many. The Arthur Lee Tutson #36 Youth Fraternity, in Lake Charles, is committed to changing those odds by promoting suicide awareness in the community. One conversation can mean the difference between life and death.
