September is Suicide Prevention Month

suicide depression

In 2019, suicide rates in teens and young adults have reached its highest rate in over two decades. Although there is no single cause, depression is the most common condition associated with suicide. Studies show that conditions like depression, anxiety, and substance problems, especially when unaddressed, increase risk for suicide.

Check out the blog post from FamilyMeans on the warning signs you can watch for in people who are contemplating suicide or self-harm. Additional resources are available online.
