Suicide Prevention Week
September 10-16, 2023
September is Suicide Prevention Month in the USA, with National Suicide Prevention Week from
September 10-16, 2023, and World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10. During this month,
week and day, individuals and organizations will be drawing attention to the problem of suicide
and advocating the prevention of this tragedy. It’s a time to share resources and stories and promote
suicide prevention awareness. All around the nation, suicide prevention organizations will conduct
prevention and awareness events. In 2021, suicide was among the top 9 leading causes of death for
people ages 10-64. Suicide was the second leading cause of death for people ages 10-14 and 20-34.
Suicide is a national health crisis. Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect
anyone regardless of age, gender, socioeconomic status, or background. Suicide is sometimes the result
of a mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal
and often indicate more serious issues. Consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the
Idaho Crisis & Suicide Hotline. Even $5 or $10 would make a difference and could help save lives!
To donate, visit www.idahocrisis.org/donate. If you or a loved one need to talk, call ICSH now.
You don't have to be suicidal to call. Someone is always here for you on the other end of the line.
Call or text 988 or visit www.idahocrisis.org to chat online.
World Childless Week
September 11-17, 2023
World Childless Week aims to raise awareness of the childless not by choice (cnbc) community and
enable every childless person to share their story with confidence. It's for anyone who is childless despite their longing to be a parent because they have neverbeen pregnant (for any reason), not carried full
term or have suffered the sadness ofa baby born sleeping. Alongside supporting the childless
community World Childless Week hopes to reach out and work towards building bridges between
the childless, childfree and parents; raising empathy and removing the stigma of disenfranchised grief.
