September is #SuicidePreventionMonth. Let us start talking about mental health.
Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month β€” a time to raise awareness on this stigmatized, and often taboo, topic.
