Stop the Bleed & Why it Matters:

"Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of preventative deaths. Approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding or its consequences, establishing hemorrhage as the most common cause of preventable death in trauma."

Drug & Alcohol Misuse

About Our Collaborative

New York City Skyline

This website is made possible by the direct contributions of multiple Injury Prevention Specialists from across the region of NYC covering the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, & Queens. Our motivation for this collaborative site was to create a central space where we could connect communities to free resources, classes, & knowledge in our efforts to reduce injury.

"Beyond death and injury, exposure to any form of trauma, particularly in childhood, can increase the risk of mental illness and suicide; smoking, alcohol and substance abuse; chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer; and social problems such as poverty, crime and violence. For these reasons, preventing injuries and violence, including by breaking intergenerational cycles of violence, goes beyond avoiding the physical injury to contributing to substantial health, social and economic gains."- World Health Organization 2022
