Suicide Awareness Week
Suicide Awareness Week is September 10-14, 2018!
The week begins with World Suicide Prevention Day, on 10 September, a global event that is organized by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and co-sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO). World Suicide Prevention Day began in 2003 with the purpose to raise awareness around the globe that suicide can be prevented. Events throughout the week focus on the ideas of "There is hope. There is help.", "We Got Your Back", and "Vandals Helping Vandals", which all coincide with this year's World Suicide Prevention Day theme "Working Together to Prevent Suicide". Learn about prevention, take part in a training, participate in our 3rd annual We Got Your Back Suicide Awareness 5k, and more throughout the week.
