September is National Suicide Prevention Month
SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 – We believe a wellness journey includes the communities we live in. That’s why we decided to participate in National Suicide Prevention Month with a donation to KSPHQ.
September is National Suicide Prevention Month with National Suicide Prevention Week September 6-12 and World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10. This is a month to bring awareness to suicide prevention, mental health, and to educate the public about the growing public health crisis that is now the 9th leading cause of death in the U.S.
