Mental health professionals in Devils Lake say suicide is a bigger problem in the Lake Region than other parts of the country.

Doctor Sara Kenney with Blooming Prairie Therapy says suicide is the ninth leading cause of death in North Dakota. Lake Region Suicide Prevention Committee will sponsor a suicide prevention walk for the second year in a row. The walk will help people find organizations to work with people who have suicidal feelings. Registration for the walk starts tomorrow at 4:30 at Ruger Park, with a charity auction to follow the race.
