Currently on Display: Suicide Awareness

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month—a time to share resources & discussion in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo & stigmatized topic. We use this month to reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness & connect individuals with help. While suicide prevention is always important, Suicide Prevention Awareness Month provides a dedicated time to come together with strength around a difficult topic. These books are only a few of the many out there that have managed to expose the reasons why people turn to suicide & how to spot the signs. Below is a list of resources that you can contact if you, a friend or a loved one is battling with thoughts of suicide.
