This is an interesting article regarding World Suicide Prevention Day, which is today, September 10, 2013. Are your organizations doing anything locally to promote this important day?

The article below ends with an important note, no one is immune from suicide. Whether it is you having suicidal ideation, have a loved one who died by suicide, you’ve known someone who has contemplated it, or you’ve never been aware of it in your life, anyone and everyone can prevent suicide by being more aware, asking the right questions, and taking action when necessary.
