September is Suicide Prevention Month
Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month — a time to raise awareness on this stigmatized, and often taboo, topic. In addition to shifting public perception, this month is used to spread hope and vital information to people affected by suicide. The goal is ensuring that individuals,
friends and families have access to the
resources they need to discuss suicide
prevention and to seek help.
