September is Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month
Tuesday, September 26, 2023
September is Suicide Prevention and Awareness month. There are many resources in Oklahoma for people experiencing a mental health crisis. 988 is a three-digit mental health phone number that connects Oklahomans with trained behavioral health professionals to provide support and resources. It is available 24/7. NAMI Oklahoma is a statewide team made of families, members, and partners who are leading the change on mental illness. The Autism Foundation of Oklahoma has just launched a new campaign bringing awareness and support related to suicide within the autism community.
