September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Join us to spread awareness about suicide prevention and resources available to help.

Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone and is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Know the signs. Find the words. Reach out. Suicidal thoughts should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues. Research shows people who are having thoughts of suicide feel relief when someone asks after them in a caring manner, and talking about suicide may reduce rather than increase suicidal ideation.
