Today, September 10th, is World Suicide Prevention Day. A day to raise awareness and resources for something that, according to a World Health Organization report, claims the lives of 800,000 people a year.
800,000 people who felt they had no one to turn to.
If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). There are other options and there is help.
In so many cases, underlying mental health issues are a factor among those seeking treatment for addiction. Suicide is not the answer. Alcohol is not the answer. Drugs are not the answer.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, please call us at 888-535-1516.
