National Suicide Prevention Month 2021
September is National Suicide Prevention Month and National Suicide Prevention Week is September 5 – 11, 2021. The American Association of Suicidology believes we need to focus on suicide prevention every day, of every year. And we can do this by continuously spreading awareness, advocating for research funding, developing innovative and effective treatment tools, being kind, and helping to educate others on things like resources and warning signs. It’s time to get involved, but not just this week and not just the month. It’s time to make #AAS365 a priority. And it’s time to make our efforts count.
FOR 2021, WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT ACTION, BEHAVIOR, ACTIVITY, OR OTHER EVENT YOU THINK CREATES SUICIDE PREVENTION. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU – SEND US ONE WORD, OR YOUR VIDEOS, SONGS, ART, DRAWINGS, POEMS, ESSAYS, HOWEVER YOU CAN EXPRESS WHAT SUICIDE PREVENTION MEANS TO YOU – AND WE’LL POST YOUR CREATIONS HERE. POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHAT SUICIDE PREVENTION MEANS TO YOU AND USE THE HASHTAG #AAS365 OR #SPM21 AND WE’LL MAKE SURE TO SHARE YOUR CONTENT.
