Helping those in conflict and crisis

Other Resources

September is Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month 

It takes a community to save lives. We can all do something. 

If you are suicidal or someone you know is suicidal, please know that help and hope are available and recovery is possible. Learn the warning signs, and do whatever you can to get yourself or someone you care about to the help they need so that they can return to living mentally well.

Suicide most often occurs when stressors exceed current coping abilities of someone suffering from a mental health condition. There is help and hope available. Call 269-381-HELP now for immediate emotional support or crisis intervention. Dial 2-1-1 for referrals to local programs and services that can help. 

Learn how to get involved this September on our Events page.
