Looking Ahead: With September being Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, let’s take this opportunity to talk about the importance of altering the perception of an often-stigmatized topic. Having the conversation maybe uncomfortable but it’s okay to discuss mental health and suicide, and it’s okay to not be okay. Take time to learn the warning signs, ask the right questions and listen deeply. The nationwide suicide hotline is 988 and our 211 Broward call center’s trained counselors can help with mental health, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse and much more. I urge our one Broward community to spread the word of hope and help.
