Suicide Prevention Month









    September is National Suicide Prevention Month

    Throughout the month of September mental health professionals and mental health organizations bring awareness to this very important topic. Efforts are dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to the resources they need to seek help.


    Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone regardless of gender, race, age, upbringing, education level, ethnicity, or other demographic, lifestyle, or socio-economic factors.
