Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

During National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we can open up the conversation about suicide to reduce stigma, raise awareness, and connect people to treatment. Suicide is often hard to talk about for those who have lost someone or those who have suicidal thoughts. But we can all come together to share stories and resources to help with suicide prevention. Learn more about Suicide Prevention Awareness Month at nami.org/suicidepreventionmonth.

World Suicide Prevention Day is September 10, with the theme “Working Together to Prevent Suicide.” Community Care is committed to preventing suicide and has implemented the Zero Suicide initiative – a system-wide, organizational commitment to safer suicide care in health and behavioral health care systems. For more information about Zero Suicide, visit zerosuicide.sprc.org.

If you or anyone you know are having suicidal thoughts, these resources can help. In an emergency, call 911 right away.
