Having access to the resources you need in an emergency is so important. When you’re in trouble, not having to hunt around for the information can be so helpful for improving the likelihood of a positive outcome. Knowing that the connections you need are close at hand is comforting. This is particularly true when it comes to suicide prevention and assisting in cases of abuse.
Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the US. The World Health Organization estimates that 800,000 people die due to suicide every year, one person every forty seconds. With recent high profile suicides, this issue has become even more of a topic of discussion. Suicides tend to increase following celebrity suicides, making the need for public education about available resources even more important.
Additionally, RAINN reports that an American is sexually assaulted every 98 seconds, while 10 million people worldwide are physically abused every year according to the NCADV. Victims often find it difficult to reach out for help, may times because they don’t know where to turn or are afraid to go to local authorities.
The In-telligent app can help victims of abuse or those considering suicide. At what can feel like someone’s lowest point, help is there to listen at the touch of a button. We recognize there is a need in this area and thatu2019s why we are making sure our app has even more options available to users in our community.
