September 2017: Focus on Suicide Prevention

On this first day of September, getting the word out. Thank you Madelyn for providing this information.

ADD . . . and-so-much-more

Awareness Day Articles ’round the β€˜net
Depression, PTSD, Chronic Pain and more
– the importance of kindness & understanding
(and maybe an email to your legislators for MORE research funding?)

World Suicide Prevention Day – Monday, September 10, 2017 – every year, since 2003.

The introduction and Suicide Awareness section of this article is an edited reblog of the one I posted in September 2016.Β  Unfortunately, not much has changed in the past year.

Notice that my usual calendar is missing this month, to underscore the reality that those who commit suicide no longer have use for one.

Onward and upward?

β€œI am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I can do.” ~ Helen Keller

  1. BIGTIME apologies for taking so long to get over here to thank you for your help spreading the word (and for approving the notification on my own blog). I don’t know how my ADD eyes didn’t see it sooner — and please don’t take that to mean that I take your kind reblog for granted. I SO appreciate it. Thank you.
