Preventing Suicide Begins With Raising Awareness

10 September 2016   Laura Norman
Make a difference. Connect with others.

Join with others around the world who are working toward the common goal of preventing suicide. This day is recognized as World Suicide Prevention Day, and it ends a week of education and activities on this topic. What can you do to make a difference? Check in on someone you may be concerned about, and start a caring conversation with them. Investigate ways of connecting with others who are trying to prevent suicide in your community, your state, your country. In Arizona, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for ages 15 to 34.
