September 9th through 15th is National Suicide Prevention Week. There is no single cause to suicide. Several factors can increase a person’s risk for attempting or dying by suicide.
#BeThe1To is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s message for National Suicide Prevention Month and beyond, spreading the word about actions we can all take to prevent suicide. The Lifeline network and its partners are working to change the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention, to actions that can promote healing, help and give hope. Together, we can prevent suicide by learning to help ourselves, help others, seek consultation from trained providers (hotlines and clinicians), and to seek hospital care when necessary.
