September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

Mental health and suicide prevention are important topics that never go out of date. By taking the opportunity to promote National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we can help encourage conversations, reduce stigma and increase support to those who are hurting.

Stigma may not directly affect you, but it prevents 1 in 5 Americans with mental health conditions from seeking help.
