If you or someone you care about are struggling with thoughts of suicide,

World Mental Health Day 2023 is an opportunity for people and communities to unite behind the theme ‘Mental health is a universal human right” to improve knowledge, raise awareness and drive actions that promote and protect everyone’s mental health as a universal human right.

Messages of Hope from Survivors

September was Suicide Prevention Month, a time to reflect on our efforts across the state, spread awareness, and end stigma surrounding suicide. Suicide can affect anyone – no matter their age, race, gender, or sexual orientation. And that’s important to remember, especially when you may encounter someone who is in crisis.

In OSPF’s September episode, you’ll hear the very real stories of survivors and their messages of hope and guidance for all of us as we continue to do this work. Content warning: this episode features personal details about suicidal thoughts and actions. If this is something that you feel might to be triggering, we highly recommend you skip past this episode. If you or someone you know is in need of support, please call or text 988.
