September is Fall Prevention
& Suicide Prevention Month

Suicide Prevention Month

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month —a time to raise awareness of this stigmatized, and often taboo, topic. We use this month to shift public perception, spread hope and share vital information to people affected by suicide. Our goal is ensuring that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and to seek help. Connect with a trained crisis counselor at any time – day or night – by calling or texting 988 or chatting at For additional support and local resources visit
