September is Suicide Prevention Month and serves as a critical reminder of the importance of discussing and addressing the issue of suicide. It provides an opportunity to break the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide, hoping to foster an environment where the people we love and care about can feel safe and encouraged to discuss and seek help when needed. Open and empathetic conversations about suicide not only raise awareness but also save lives. Understanding the warning signs, risk factors, and available resources is vital in supporting those who may be struggling.
