September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, September 10-17 is Suicide Awareness Week
The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health, is hosting World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10th, 2017. This year’s theme is “Take a Minute, Save Life.,” and will focus on raising awareness that suicide is a major preventable cause of premature death on a global level. Governments need to develop policy frameworks for national suicide prevention strategies. At the local level, policy statements and research outcomes need to be translated into prevention programs and activities in communities.
Take the pledge to be stigma free with NAMI.
