Suicide Prevention Resources

Everyone has a role in suicide prevention. Use these resources to save lives.

Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Suicide is preventable. Take time this month to connect, communicate, and care.

  • Connect: Be there for someone who may be disconnected from the world around them. Build a relationship with them.
  • Communicate: Show compassion and empathy when talking with others. Listen in an open way.
  • Care: Help others understand that whatever they may be going through there are resources available. Connect them to supports.
