September is Suicide Prevention Month
Be the Change: How to Support Suicide Prevention Efforts This September
September, 2024
As we approach Suicide Prevention Month, share the information below with your communities to help them know what to expect — and more importantly, how to get involved.

September is Suicide Prevention Month! In the U.S., World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10, 2024) is surrounded by National Suicide Prevention Week (September 8 through 14). All month, the internet will be full of information about preventing suicide. You’ll likely see a lot of teal and purple, which are the official colors of suicide prevention.

Throughout September, prevention practitioners, advocates, and allies will promote a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention. People who have experienced suicidal thoughts or suicide attempts or lost loved ones to suicide may share their perspectives. Clinicians and other experts will likely give webinars on suicide interventions. Prevention organizations may host roundtables to discuss legislative efforts, policies, and the in-development 2024 National Strategy for Suicide Prevention.
