National Suicide Prevention Month

National Suicide Prevention Month is observed every year in September by many suicide prevention and mental health organizations. It is a time to raise awareness of the issue and to promote resources available to people struggling with suicidal thoughts, as well as their friends and family. Here are some books from our collection on the topic. In addition, you can reach the 24-hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255).
