September is Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month, with National Suicide Prevention Week taking place Sept. 9 through Sept. 15. These campaigns serve to inform and engage our community about suicide prevention and warning signs of suicide. Take a few moments to understand the risk factors around suicide and learn the warning signs. Having the knowledge now may help you help a friend or family member in distress. Get additional information about how you can help prevent suicide from the National Alliance in Mental Illness.
