Let’s talk about it.

The topic of suicide is not an easy conversation, but it is an important conversation to have. This week, September 9th – September 15th, is National Suicide Prevention Week; a week where we break down the walls and stigma of mental health issues and raise awareness and visibility of the options there are to seek help.

In some way, directly or indirectly, we have all been affected by suicide. The loss of a loved one, friend, acquaintance, or idol. With a number of people dealing with mental health issues all over the country, we can’t help but ask “Is there something I can do?”

If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide and/or mental instability, there are local resources that you can turn to.

  • Teen Link: a program from Crisis Connections specifically made for teens to talk and seek help from other teens trained to listen and talk about concerns
