September 10th, 2018, is World Suicide Prevention Day. This is a topic that we should pay close attention to because we all have a roll to play when it comes to suicide prevention.
Licensed mental health professionals are equipped to provide the right tools for anyone needing to cope with depression, hopelessness, confusion, anxiety and/or suicidal thoughts. An Individual who attends therapy will be less likely to resist urges to self-harm.
In addition, being a friend or neighbor can go a long way. If you think someone is suicidal; it may be helpful to stay with them and listen. This type of care and support can keep someone safe until they can seek professional help.
You can bring hope and together we can fight the stigma against mental health and save lives. If you, a friend, or family member are struggling we are here to help you.
