Everyone can play a role in preventing suicide! During National Suicide Prevention Month in September, help the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) raise awareness by sharing resources that help others recognize the warning signs for suicide and know how to get help.
To learn more about suicide prevention, visit the NIMH website.
Suicide is a major public health concern. More than 45,900 people die by suicide each year in the United States; it is the 12th leading cause of death overall. Suicide is complicated and tragic, but it is often preventable. For more information on suicide prevention, visit the NIMH health topic page or download brochures.
Help raise awareness by sharing resources that help others recognize the warning signs for suicide and know how to get help.
