September is National Suicide Prevention Month
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 45,000 Americans die by suicide each year. Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, or background. Although not uncommon, suicidal thoughts should not be considered normal and are often an indicator of something more serious.
While suicide prevention is important to address year-round, the month of September is a dedicated time for mental health workers, prevention organizations, those affected by suicide and the community to come together to educate the public and have honest conversations about mental health. Having open conversations about mental health and emotional struggles helps reduce the stigma, which is what prevents a lot of people from seeking the help they need. This month we are dedicated to sharing resources, information and stories to help people navigate a mental health crisis and connect with treatment services.
