September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Too often the topic of suicide stays hidden in the dark, preventing individuals from seeking help and sharing their stories. So this month is dedicated to shedding light on the taboo topic of suicide. Take the time to engage in honest conversations about depression and other mental health issues, suicidal thoughts, and how to access available resources.
