September is Suicide Prevention Month

During an emotionally challenging time, especially with increased isolation and anxiety caused by COVID-19, feeling overwhelmed or powerless is common, even when you are not at high risk of getting sick. The risks related to untreated depression and anxiety can lead to increased thoughts of hopelessness and sometimes the presence of suicidal thoughts.

Getting treatment and support is the key to suicide prevention and it is important to know that help is available and where to find assistance during a difficult time. In recognition of Suicide Prevention Month, Skokie Human Services staff is here to guide community members with information about area resources to help.

 See an article about suicide prevention, coping tips and local resources from the Skokie Human Services staff.
