September is National Suicide Prevention Month!

Throughout the United States, individuals and organizations are stepping up to recognize September as Suicide Prevention Month, the week of September 8-14 as National Suicide Prevention Week, and September 10th as World Suicide Prevention Day. The goal of annual suicide prevention observances is not to prevent suicide on a specific day, week, or month, but rather to encourage wide participation in educational activities that draw attention to the problem of suicide and advocate for prevention efforts. 
 
This year’s theme, Working Together to Prevent Suicide, is particularly fitting as we think about all of the collaboration happening within our communities and throughout the commonwealth. As part of Governor Wolf’s recently announced Suicide Prevention Task Force, multiple state agencies and organizations are working together for the first time on the Pennsylvania statewide suicide prevention plan, and stakeholders will be attending listening sessions in communities around the state to share their knowledge and experiences with state leaders. 
 
Join us in Education to also spread awareness and to help make it known that it is okay to reach out to help and to reach out for help!
