The Safer Homes Collaborative is a joint effort between the gun owning community and the suicide prevention community to raise awareness that suicide can be prevented through safe gun storage. Firearms are the leading method by which people end their lives in the United States and Missouri. Statistically, more people attempt suicide by overdose or suffocation; however, more people die in a suicide attempt with a firearm. In fact, six out of ten suicide deaths in Missouri are with a firearm.
