Suicide Prevention Month: Partner Toolkit
CDC observes Suicide Prevention Month every September. It’s a time to raise awareness about suicide as a serious public health problem and to highlight the role that everyone plays in preventing suicide. Part of making suicide prevention month a success is having the right resources to communicate and the right messages to raise awareness and increase prevention efforts. This toolkit can help.
CDC’s Injury Center created a Suicide Prevention Month Social Media Toolkit, which includes sample social media graphics and messages centered around the key role personal connections play in preventing suicide. The toolkit content also highlights messages about the importance of connecting with others, learning how to cope with stress in order to increase resilience, and promoting the new 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.
Use the graphics and sample messages below to help spread the message that suicide is preventable, and we all play an important role in prevention efforts.
