Suicide Prevention Week

posted in: In the News | 0

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week in the US, and it just so happens that Friday is also World Suicide Prevention Day.

I wanted to take a moment and highlight the Take 5 to Save Lives program that the National Council for Prevention of Suicide has put together for this year. I think there are some really good ideas, and ways for you to be involved in being more aware about suicide risks, and how you can help.

1. Learn the signs
2. Join the movement
3. Spread the word
4. Support a friend
5. Reach out if you need help

Please take a moment and visit the website and learn about the warning signs first and foremost, and then be aware of them, both in yourself and the ones you love.
