September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month —a time to raise awareness of this stigmatized, and often taboo, topic. We use this month to shift public perception, spread hope and share vital information to people affected by suicide. Our goal is ensuring that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and to seek help.
Tri-County Health Network offers a wide range of events and classes to support the health of our community. Please link to their page below.
