Sept. 5 to 11 is National Suicide Prevention Week

The goal of National Suicide Prevention Week, held this year from Sept. 5 to 11, is to raise awareness and inform individuals about the actions they can take to prevent suicide from occurring in their own communities. It is an opportunity to reduce the stigma surrounding the topic, encourage mental health assistance and connect those at risk to invaluable resources.
