Most people know someone who has struggled with mental health or who has been affected by suicide. September is National Suicide Prevention Month and Divorce Matters wants to show our support by providing resources for you or anyone you know dealing with depression or suicidal thoughts. We can all help prevent suicide, and understanding the issue is the most important way to take part in that. There are risk factors and warning signs to be aware of that might help you determine if someone is at risk of committing suicide.
Whether it is dealing with mental health or going through a tough time in life, we can all take action and provide support to those who might be considering suicide. Changing the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention can help promote healing and give hope to those who need it. Check out https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ for more information and resources on how to get involved and raise awareness for suicide prevention. If you or someone you know is in need of help call the 24/7 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK(8255).
