National Suicide Prevention Month Suicide is preventable.

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, a time to share resources and learn how you can help.

Suicide is now the second leading cause of death in young people ages 10-24. It's also preventable.

HERE Now, our suicide prevention and intervention services, is helping educate, prevent and heal in 116 schools in 22 school districts in San Diego County.

You can help.

Evidence shows that providing support services, talking about suicide, reducing access to means of self-harm and following up with loved ones are just some of the actions we can all take to help others. We can help prevent suicide by talking openly about mental health in our families, schools, and communities.
