National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month— a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. We use this month to reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness and connect individuals with suicidal ideation to treatment services. It is also important to ensure that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention.

Suicide Prevention Month

In September, we recognize the following observances:

· September : Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

· September 9-15th : National Suicide Prevention Week

· September 10th : World Suicide Prevention Day

Suicide Prevention Week and Day

If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.
