HBM Observes National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month 2019
The Hospital for Behavioral Medicine is an ally to those in need of behavioral mental health treatment and services. With September being recognized as National Suicide Prevention Month, our priority is to make sure anyone who is struggling with depression or thoughts of suicide gets the help they need. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255. After dialing, your call will be routed to the nearest crisis center to receive immediate counseling and local mental health referrals. Help is always out there for those seeking it.
Throughout September, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members will unite to promote suicide prevention awareness.
National Suicide Prevention Week in 2019 begins Sunday, September 8th, and ends Saturday, September 14th. It’s a time to share resources & stories, as well as promote suicide prevention awareness.
The international suicide prevention day from 2019 is Tuesday, September 10th. It’s a time to remember those affected by suicide, spread awareness, and to focus efforts on directing treatment to those who need it the most.
Once again, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255. If you or a loved one is struggling, please give them a call immediately.
