September 10th is Suicide Awareness Day
On September 10th, across the world, people will be lighting a candle in or near a window at 8 p.m. Lights will be shining around the world in memory of loved ones lost to suicide. Please light a candle in memory of your loved one.
The purpose of this day is to raise awareness around the globe that suicide can be prevented by:
• Disseminating information: so people can better understand suicide.
• Improving education and training: so people will know the signs of suicide ideation.
• Decreasing stigmatization: so people suffering will feel free to seek the help they need, and so survivors can openly discuss their losses without fear of judgment.
