September is Suicide Prevention Month, a time when we remember those we have lost and take action to ensure everyone hears a message of hope: “The World Needs You Here.”

Join us this month as we fundraise for suicide prevention, launch our national Send Silence Packing tour, and share stories from students, staff, and members worldwide on what “The World Needs You Here” means to them.

Additionally, you can find even more content, the newest resources, and a live view of our social feeds at our “The World Needs You Here” homepage. Thank you for being part of this journey with us.
