Focus on suicide prevention

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
Sept 8-14 is National Suicide Prevention Week and Sept. 10 is National Suicide Awareness Day.  There will be educational events across the nation to raise awareness of the signs of suicide and encourage communities to engage in suicide prevention activities. Ninety percent of the people who die from suicide were suffering from a mental illness such as depression or bipolar disorder at the time of their death.
