Suicide

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. At Centerstone, we recognize National Suicide Prevention Month as a time for mental health advocates, community members, prevention organizations, survivors and others to raise awareness and promote constructive discussion about suicide prevention.  We also seek to break the stigma surrounding suicide and provide opportunities for fruitful conversations.

Here you can find articles, fact sheets, video, and other resources on suicide and prevention efforts.  We hope you will join us this month and onward into the future as we work to help prevent suicide by encouraging conversations, breaking down barriers, and connecting those in crisis to the appropriate resources.

If you’re a member of the media and are looking for someone to speak about suicide prevention, we invite you to connect with us here or by requesting the help of a member of our Speaker’s Bureau.


Are you at risk of hurting yourself or someone else? Call one of our crisis lines now:
