September is National Suicide Prevention Month

One of the ways SSBH has given back to the community is the involvement of awareness. The impacts of suicide in our society have hit home for many. To make a dent in the movement to provide understanding to Thurston County, SSBH has made it a point to provide suicide prevention awareness items for families who have lost a loved one to suicide. The items given to families affected are signs and symptom information flyers, pamphlets of options to help, community resources, stress balls, pens, notepads, etc. Every life lost is a losing position in this battle, but spreading the awareness for each loss can amplify the movement to gain an advantage in this battle. The knowledge of suicide awareness is so powerful and crucial to the campaign.
