September 2019 Word of the Month is more than just a word but rather a call to action. Building on the existing momentum, this month we will focus on one of the most pressing issues of our time: SUICIDE. We are joining forces with the Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Active Minds, American Suicide Prevention Foundation and many other partners to raise awareness this month and hopefully the year around. We will be sharing resources, and policy recommendations, and highlighting leaders that are working tirelessly to reduce the suicide rate across our country.
You can #BeThe1To save a life by taking the five steps:
- Keep them safe.
- Be there.
- Help them connect.
- Follow Up
If you or someone you know is struggling call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
