September is National Suicide Prevention Month. All month, mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors, allies, and community members unite to promote suicide prevention awareness.

Join Jeffco Public Schools as we explore a different topic within suicide prevention. Make time to use the weekly resources and activities to Learn, Connect, Take Care and Share. We believe that suicide prevention is Everybody’s Business because Every Person Matters, Every Single Day!
