INDIANA COUNSELING ASSOCIATION
September is National Suicide Prevention Month
#BeThe1To is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s message for National Suicide Prevention Month and beyond, which helps spread the word about actions we can all take to prevent suicide. The Lifeline network and its partners are working to change the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention, to actions that can promote healing, help and give hope. #BeThe1To Ask, Be There, Keep Them Safe, Help Them Connect, and Follow Up.
