Nineteen percent of Duval County high school students have attempted suicide. This is twice the national average among high schoolers. This information made me question chance and determinism. These statistics have warranted great concern locally, many people recognizing Florida's ranking of 49th in all the US for mental health funding.

By creating small boxes overlapping with Duval County area maps, I aimed to represent the data I processed, relating each box to someone's lived experience relative to place.
