September is Suicide Prevention Month
September is National Suicide Prevention Month when all month, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite to promote suicide prevention awareness.
#BeThe1To is the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline’s message for National Suicide Prevention Month and beyond, which helps spread the word about actions we can all take to prevent suicide. The Lifeline network and its partners are working to change the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention, to actions that can promote healing, help and give hope.
