September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. National Suicide Prevention Week is September 5 – 11, 2021, with World Suicide Prevention Day on the 10th. Throughout the month, and especially during the week of September 5, individuals and organizations around the country have plans to highlight the problem of suicide and advocate its prevention.
Suicide is a national health problem and currently ranks as the second leading cause of death for ages 10-45. Suicide is also one of the most preventable types of death in our nation.
Throughout the United States, suicide prevention organizations, including The Jason Foundation, will be facilitating prevention and awareness events.
