National Suicide Prevention WeekPosted on September 1, 2015 by JoAnne
National Suicide Prevention Week is September 6 through September 12.
The Anxiety Depression Association of America and the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention conducted a public opinion poll on mental health and suicide prevention, and the results are truly encouraging.
- Nearly all respondents think suicide is sometimes or often preventable (94 percent).
- Adults (93 percent) would do something if someone close to them was thinking about suicide.
- Of those that have received treatment for mental health conditions, most thought it was helpful whether it was psychotherapy (82 percent), medication (78 percent) or another form of treatment.
- Two out of three people said they would tell someone if they were having thoughts of suicide.
