Today marks the first day of National Suicide Prevention month!
Please take the time to educate yourself on this topic!
IT IS IMPORTANT!
So many lives are touched by suicide.
Suicide is a heavily stigmatized topic. Many people deal with suicidal thoughts and/or behaviors IN SILENCE due to the stigma. We need change.
If you are struggling: you are worthy of help, even if you don’t believe it.
If you see someone struggling: offer help.
If you have a history of suicidality: make a safety/crisis plan.
Have a beautiful & safe September, lovely people!
