September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month
Suicide is among the leading causes of death in the United States. For people living with a mood disorder, thoughts of suicide are a frightening, yet common, reality of managing a mental health condition. In our Suicide Prevention month toolkit, you will find information and resources to manage thoughts of suicide, create a crisis plan, and identify warning signs in others.

When I joined I felt isolated and in crisis. I didn’t know where to turn. I found a supportive community of educated, helpful and kind parents who love their children very much. I desperately needed to know that my son could find light at the end of the tunnel. I found optimism and helpful suggestions.
