National Suicide Prevention Week is September 8-14. This year we’re encouraging people to create a safety net for those who are struggling – themselves included – by educating and inspiring them to feel as comfortable talking about mental health as they would their physical health. By knowing how to have a #RealConvo with the people in our lives, recognize the risks and warning signs for suicide, and understand the ways to connect to help, we can all play a role in making our communities safer.
We’ve created a toolkit filled with inspiration, guidance, social media sharables and more, enabling you to:
WATCH short, informative videos SHARE images, and other goodies on social media READ blogs featuring personal perspectives and expert guidance on how to have a #RealConvo TAKE ACTION and get involved in the cause
The toolkit contains a calendar of events for September, including Twitter chats, as well as personal stories, #RealConvo guides, and further resources for those who are struggling. We’ll continue to add new social sharables, merchandise updates and more throughout the month.
So get excited! Together, we can make this the best National Suicide Prevention Week yet. Thank you for helping us to spread the word, get people talking more openly about mental health and suicide prevention, and make our communities and loved ones safer in the process.
