September is National Suicide Awareness Month. There were three suicide awareness walks in the Northern Lakes service area this year, in Roscommon, Traverse City, and Cadillac to inspire hope and raise awareness of how to prevent suicide and be supportive to others who are struggling. Suicide can touch anyone, anywhere, and at any time. But there is hope. Northern Lakes provides a 24-Hour Crisis Line at 1-833-295-0616 to assist anyone in crisis. Call us.
National resources, including three new videos, are also available from SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Visit https://www.samhsa.gov/suicide
