September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

I attended a Suicide Prevention Stand Down event in September.  I wanted to share some resources I came across through the training.
If you want to have more training in suicide prevention, ASIST is a program available to train laypersons in resources for suicide prevention.

Military OneSource or 1-800-342-9647 or online counseling site
