September has been suicide awareness month since 2008, and this years theme is “Creating hope through action.” Always making sure to watch out for warning signs, being a good listener, speaking up if you're worried about someone and staying connected with them are some of the best ways to help prevent suicide. If you're worried about someone one, the best way to reach out would be to just ask if there is anything they want/ need, help them connect with others around them, follow up with them everyday and try to visit them in person. Don't forget there's always the passive suicidal people to watch out for as well. They may have the desire without a plan and won't physically act upon the ideation but they are still just as important to check up on!
