September Is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month


People have become increasingly comfortable talking about their mental health, particularly this past year. The topic of suicide – when it comes up – is still scary for many people to think about and each year more than 48,000 Americans die by suicide. 

Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month — a time to raise awareness on this subject, which all too often still comes with a stigma.

We at BioSound Technologies have partnered with Survive First, (, to assist those people who are in need of help.
