September marks National Suicide Prevention Month – a month where we come together as a nation to commit to making suicide prevention a national priority. It is also a month to remember the lives lost to suicide, support the millions of Americans who have struggled with suicidality, and acknowledge the individuals, families, and communities that have been impacted.
