September is National Suicide Prevention Month. You can help save a life.
For National Suicide Prevention Month, we are asking you to do just this: Find your one and Be the one for someone else. By sharing openly and listening, we can help each other survive moments of hopelessness. If you’re thinking about suicide, or think someone else is, talk about it. Sometimes, just asking how someone is feeling can help. The best way to show you care? Be there.
So how do we talk about this? You're invited to join 417 Magazine to learn how.
Join us as 417 Magazine and Burrell Behavioral Health present a two-part webinar series on having honest conversations with the people in our lives, featuring Burrell’s Dr. Shelly Farnan, as previously seen in the Life Interrupted series.
