Each year, over 44,000 Americans die by suicide. Help raise awareness of this important cause by taking part in National Suicide Prevention Week, September 10 to 16. For ideas on how to participate, visit the American Association of Suicidology website here.
STOP Suicide Northeast Indiana and Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana have developed two toolkits to help people affected by suicide. The Finding Hope toolkit provides information on suicide prevention and coping after a suicide attempt. The Help & Hope toolkit provides supportive information to loved ones following a suicide loss.
