Here at A Better Way TMS & Psychiatry Clinic, we believe that mental health matters more than anything in the world. That is why we hope to bring your attention to Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, an observance that is supported by the
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and many other organizations.
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and it is a time to bring mental health issues to light and break the stigma that surrounds them. So often mental health conditions go unnoticed, untreated, and lead to detrimental effects.
This September, we encourage you to look into the resources listed on the website for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and spread the word about all there is out there to help people through a mental health crisis. For drug-free mental health care in Orange County, CA, contact our psychiatry and TMS clinic.
Are You Experiencing Suicidal Thoughts?
No matter what you are going through, you don’t have to do it alone. Here at A Better Way, we believe that it is okay to not be okay. When you need a helping hand or if you are ready to make a change in your life, we are here for you.
Even though suicide prevention and awareness is important all year long, we can’t help but shine a special light on it this month. Take the time to assess your own mental health as well as that of your loved ones and you may save a life. When you reach a point where you know you or a loved one needs help, please do not be afraid to reach out for it.
According to the National Institute on Menalth Health, there were almost 46,000 lives lost in the United States during the year 2020 alone to suicide. It is up to us to open the door to others to talk about their mental health challenges and connect them with life-saving resources. You can be a part of the movement that is working to prevent suicide and raise awareness about the cause.
