September Is Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month

It's September; summer is coming to an end, kids are back in school. And here at LegacyConnect, we are thinking about suicide: how to prevent it and how to support the bereaved.


September 4-10, 2011, is designated as National Suicide Prevention Week ( and September 10, 2011, is World Suicide Prevention Day ( American Association of Suicidology President Michelle Linn-Gust encourages everyone to learn about what you can do to help prevent a death by suicide: "Don’t miss out on your chance to learn more about how to help others. Many times we don’t know how much people are hurting until we ask. Don’t be afraid to ask because you never know when you might save a life."
