National Suicide Prevention Month | September

September 1, 2022

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, a time to unite to promote awareness about suicide prevention. #BeThe1To — the hashtag and website used by the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline — was created not only for National Suicide Prevention Month, but it also serves as a meaningful resource throughout the year. The network’s messages help to spread the word about critical actions that we can all take to prevent suicide. The Lifeline network and its partners are working to change the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention — and to promote actions that heal, help, and give hope

We can all help to prevent suicide. Understanding the issues concerning suicide and mental health is an important way to take part in suicide prevention, help others in crisis, and change the conversation around suicide.
