Suicide Prevention Awareness Month #BeThere
September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and organizations across the country will join together to raise awareness about suicide prevention and help save lives. As we spread a message of hope, help, and healing, the TAPS family would like you to join us in our effort to educate others about suicide risks and protective factors. Together, we can work to inform and connect all those in need to the crisis and community resources they seek.
At TAPS, we understand that hope saves lives and that negative messaging may increase hopelessness in those who are suffering. To help us all enter National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month with the best information on prevention and reporting, we have prepared safe messaging guidelines and a resource tool kit for your use.
During September, we would like to hear your stories of healing and finding hope after loss. Share with others what you have learned about suicide prevention since your loss. Most important of all, we would love to see photos and learn more about the fabulous lives your loved ones lived.
Thank you for joining us this month as we find hope, help, and healing together.
