National Suicide Prevention Month

“We don't kill ourselves. We are simply defeated by the long, hard struggle to stay alive.

This means there are often reliable signs that someone may be considering suicide and there multiple opportunities to intervene. However, not everyone has access to the mental health resources they need or feels comfortable reaching out for help.
