As we enter the month of September, keep sharing important resources and tips on preventing suicide, like the fine folks at NAMI remind us:
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. NAMI is here to help.
Remember, one conversation, one show of caring and support can save a life. You don’t have to solve everything, you just have to care enough to stick around.
