Suicide Prevention Awareness

Did you know that September is “Suicide Prevention Awareness Month”?  I didn’t.  I just happened to stumble upon it when I went to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) website to see how they defined various types of Depression and other mental illnesses for a post I was writing.  I’m too tired to even continue.  The government, the media, the healthcare community, Doctors, hospitals, universities, and advocates are hardly making a dent in informing the public about Depression and suicide prevention.
