Suicide Prevention Week

National Suicide Prevention Week is September 10-16. Suicide is a tragedy that touches the lives of many families. Each year 44,193 Americans die by suicide. See the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention‘s website for ideas on what you can do: Find a walk near you, advocate for suicide prevention, share on social media, take care of yourself and your community, have a conversation with your children. Join a Twitter chat on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 10:00 to 11:00 Pacific Time, using the hashtag #stopsuicide. The American Foundation for Suicide also has local chapters, information on how to have a conversation about suicide, crisis negotiation information, resources for college mental health and Latinos and mental health, and information for survivors. In Washington State, gun dealers, pharmacists and suicide prevention advocates have partnered in a program to save lives. Forefront Suicide Prevention is an awareness campaign which will offer training to healthcare providers, gun dealers, firearm safety instructors and pharmacists in how to recognize and respond to suicide warning signs. Education and awareness play a big role suicide prevention, and everyone in the community has a role to play.
