September 2023 Newsletter

Hello Teens Finding Hope Supporters,


Suicide Prevention Month helps raise awareness about the often-stigmatized topic. Efforts in September are intended to spread hope and vital information to people affected by suicide so that individuals, friends and families can access the resources they need during a crisis. Anyone experiencing a mental health crisis can call or text 988 for help. The call is confidential, and there is no cost. Calls route through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Trained crisis counselors are available to talk 24/7/365.


Please read below information from National Institute on Mental Health which includes action steps for someone experiencing pain, ways to check in on your own mental health and warning signs of suicide. Let's band together to help those we know and those we encounter that are struggling.
