National Suicide Prevention Week

September 8th through September 14th

 

 Did you know that, in the United States, one person completes suicide every 13 minutes? Or that itís
estimated the more than 5 million people in the United States have been directly affected by a suicide?
Experts believe that most suicidal individuals do not want to die. They just want to end the pain they are
experiencing.

Experts also know that suicidal crises tend to be brief. When suicidal behaviors are detected early, lives can be
saved.

September 8th through September 14th is National Suicide Prevention Week. Please join the Russell County Health Deparment in supporting suicide prevention. Together we can reduce the number of lives shaken by a needless and tragic death.
