First Day of National Suicide Prevention Month

Suicide is a national public health crisis. It is a leading cause of death in the United States, ranking as 10th among adult causes of death and 2nd among individuals age 15-34. It’s estimated that more than 9 million people experience thoughts of suicide each year.

We can all take action to prevent suicide and provide support to those who need it.

Throughout September, Southside Wellness Coalition will share resources to help individuals find help for themselves or someone they know, potentially saving lives.
