Suicide Prevention Awareness Month
As some of you may know, September is recognized as Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. PREVENTS (The President’s Roadmap to Empower Veterans to End the National Tragedy of Suicide) recently launched their campaign #moreThanEverBefore, to highlight the importance of caring for yourself and those you love as we manage higher levels of stress and anxiety caused by the pandemic. Part of the campaign includes a collection of mental health resources to educate and support the public on the topic. If you would like to learn more from the nation’s public health experts, you can follow the link here: https://www.va.gov/PREVENTS/resources.asp
