It's National Suicide Prevention Week (September 10-16, 2017)
Reducing the suicide rate 20 percent by 2025 may seem like a lofty goal, but it is achievable. There are simple actions everyone can take to help save a life in their families, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, and communities.

"Everybody can play a role in being there for a friend, a classmate, or a loved one who is struggling or in crisis," says Kim Torguson, associate director of communications for the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. "We know simple actions can help to save a life. It's the reason the Action Alliance is uniting the field in September to educate the public about the role they have in preventing suicide."

The Action Alliance and its partners, including the Suicide Prevention Resource Center at EDC, are coming together during National Suicide Prevention Week (September 10-16) to spread the word about steps everyone can take to prevent suicide
