September is National Suicide Prevention Month. All month, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies and community members unite to promote suicide prevention awareness.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, suicide rates are rising across the nation.

Get help if some one you know is:

  • expressing feelings of helplessness
  • talking about dying or self-harm
  • increasing use of drugs or alcohol
  • withdrawing from family and friends

In addition to knowing the warning signs, remove or limit access to letha weapons and medications.
