National Suicide Prevention Month

The COVID-19 pandemic has already significantly impacted our collective emotional health, so it’s more important than ever to talk about suicide prevention. Suicide is the second leading cause of death for people ages 10-34 and the fourth leading cause of death for people ages 35-54. Due to the massive amount of stigma, fear of being called “weak” or “selfish,” and a variety of treatment access issues, many people dealing with suicidal ideation feel unable to speak out and get help. #SuicidePrevention #NationalSuicidePreventionMonth
