May is Mental Health Month



May is ‪#‎MentalHealthMonth‬! Please join us in spreading the message that suicide is preventable and it starts with being smart about our mental health. Join us by sharing this content on social media throughout the month and by letting the people in your life know that it’s important to reach out when you’re struggling or when you’re worried about someone you know.


Mental health is as important as physical health. Mental health impacts the way we live our lives, from our daily activities to behavior, and mood. By drawing more attention to the importance of mental health we hope to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide.
Nine out of 10 people who die by suicide have a diagnosable mental health condition at the time of their death. We’re hoping that as part of our suicide prevention efforts this month, and with your help, we can inform the public of how important it is to reach out when you’re worried about someone, or need help yourself.
