Today is World Suicide Prevention Day, an awareness day observed on the 10th of September every year. Take a moment to connect and reach out to someone who may need help. A simple phone call, message, or hug can go a long way. Encourage understanding, changing the way we talk about suicide by promoting hope can create compassion for those in need to feel more comfortable asking for help. Sharing personal experiences, insights, and stories can be extremely powerful in helping others understand suicide better, and for individuals to reach out themselves. If you or someone you know are having thoughts of suicide, know there is hope and help is available. By countering myths and fear with information and action, we are changing the conversation about suicide. We all have a role to play in suicide prevention, not only during the month of September but all year long. #YouMatterMN

We all experience tough days or even weeks due to physical, emotional, financial, or social problems. Thiscmeans that sometimes we experience mental health struggles. When we experience struggle, it is important to learn how to listen to ourselves, bodies, feelings, and thoughts. Understanding how we are affected by life's stressors and struggles, will help us to identify when and how to reach out for help. • Support your health by building your own resource toolkit. The JED Foundation (https://jedfoundation.org/i-want-to-take-care-of-my-mental-health/) has resources related to specific feelings and experiences people struggle with. Check it out and fill up your resource toolkit with new knowledge and coping strategies. #YouMatterMN

Having everyday conversations about our mental health allows people to know that they are not alone, and that help is available. However, talking about mental health can sometimes be uncomfortable. The Roadmap to Mental Health (https://www.thementalhealthcoalition.org/mhcs-roadmap-to-mentalhealth/), developed by the Mental Health Coalition is a resource to help explain and provide language on what we mean when we say “mental health.” #YouMatterMN

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. While suicide prevention is important to address year-round, Suicide Prevention Awareness Month provides a dedicated time for people, organizations, and communities to join their voices to broadcast the message that suicide can be prevented and that healing is possible. Everyone has a role to play to save lives and create healthy and strong individuals, families, and communities. We can come together to reduce factors that increase the risk for suicidal thoughts and behavior and increase the factors that help strengthen, support, and protect people from suicide.
