#WorldSuicidePreventionDay does not begin with a hotline number. It begins with fostering an environment of openness, working on the mental health dialogue, changing the attitude that allows someone in need, if they can, to be able to share their pain so we can help.

September 10th is #WorldSuicidePreventionDay.
Not just today, but every day, we need to foster conversations about suicide and check up on our family & friends.
Suicide can affect anyone regardless of age, race, gender, sexuality, religion, or socioeconomic status.
