Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Awareness

Introductory Letter

Everyone has a role to play in adolescent suicide prevention:
parents, family members, school employees, coaches, health care professionals, friends, and community members. During Mental Health Awareness Month in May and Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in September, these resources are of particular focus. Kansas Maternal and Child Health Council (KMCHC) encourages you to use these graphics all year long to spread the word about the importance of taking action to prevent suicide.

The KMCHC has designed a series of social media posts based on the #BeThe1To's 5 Action Steps for Helping Someone in Crisis. Post the graphics on your social media platforms and feel free to customize the messages to include any resources, support services, treatment providers, and suicide prevention or mental health training opportunities in your community!
