World Suicide Prevention Day - September 10th 

“Working Together to Prevent Suicide”

Suicide Prevention
  • Suicide is consistently one of the top 20 causes of death for people of all ages around the world and suicide rates have been rising in nearly every state in the US. 
  • Preventing suicide takes collaboration on many levels. You can make a difference by:
    • Raising awareness about the issue
    • Educating yourself and others about the causes of suicide and warning signs for suicide
    • Reducing access to lethal means – such as medications and firearms – among people at risk of suicide
    • Showing compassion and caring for those who are in distress in your community
    • Fighting the stigma associated with suicide, suicidal behavior and mental health problems
    • Contacting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for help: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
