By Taylor Emerson |

Approximately 1 in 5 Americans suffers from a mental illness. Worldwide, over 800,000 people die by suicide each year. That's about one person every 40 seconds. In the United States, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death. The Aggie Community is not immune from these statistics. The Office of Human Resources partnered with Campus Recreation for USU’s participation in World Mental Health Day on Monday, Oct. 11.
