National Suicide Prevention Week

National Suicide Prevention Week starts tomorrow. Educate and prepare yourself with this list of 7 important ways you can participate in this week. 

More than 800,000 people died by suicide across the world each year. There are important, often easy actions you can take to reduce this number. The first thing you can do is to educate yourself about how to spot possible depression or suicidal ideation. Explore what you can do or places where either of you can reach out to for support. And do your part to lower the stigma around mental health by openly talking about how important taking care of our mental health is.
