September is Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month
Talk Saves Lives is The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s standardized, 45-60 minute education program that provides participants with a clear understanding of this leading cause of death, including the most up-to-date research on suicide prevention, and what everyone can do in their communities to save lives.

Research: Information from research on what causes people to consider suicide, as well as health, historical, and environmental factors that put individuals at risk 
Prevention: An understanding of the protective factors that lower suicide risk, and strategies for managing mental health and being proactive about self-care
