This year’s theme is “Preventing Suicide: Reaching out and Saving Lives.”
Suicide is a very complex health issue but it can be prevented. Research has found that 9 out of 10 people who die by suicide have a mental health condition. Getting effective treatment for depression or anxiety can prevent some suicides. Still mental health is not the whole picture, research has also found that self care such as good sleep, exercise, nutrition, and stress management can also play a critical role in promoting resilience. Together we can create a culture that’s smart about mental health. We’ll save lives, and vastly improve the lives of many more. So please join Coastal Horizons Center, Inc. in supporting suicide prevention. Together we can reduce the number of lives shaken by a needless and tragic death.
