Did you know:

  • Men are seven times more likely than women to die by suicide, but women are more likely to go to the hospital after hurting themselves.
  • In the 1990s, almost 50% of the people who drowned fell out of a boat. About 20% drowned after falling into the water through ice or from the shore.
  • Falls are the leading cause of injuries, and adults are most likely to go to the hospital after tripping or slipping.
