September is National Suicide Prevention Month

The Diocese of Columbus is encouraging people to join the #BeThe1To movement from the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Your greatest weapon to fight suicide is to be knowledgeable and aware of signs and symptoms when a family member or friend is in trouble. Learn how you can play a part in prevention by visiting The Diocese of Columbus webpage for resources: www.columbuscatholic.org/ suicide-prevention or BeThe1To: http://bethe1to.com. If you or someone you know is suicidal, in danger of harming themselves, or in emotional distress, contact the confidential National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or text HOME to 741741. Trained crisis workers are available to talk 24/7.
