Today is September 11th. In the United States of America, this is a day of tragedy and remembrance for those who died. Patriot Day hopefully should not be confused with Remembrance Day (Poppy Day), which is on November 11th. I’m not going to go into depth today, I wrote a little bit about 9-11 and being part of history in tomorrow’s blog post.
Right now, I’d just like to take a moment to think about the end of Suicide Prevention Week.
I’ve posted a ton of stuff this week about mental health and other details to help with suicide prevention. I actually found a great page with information about the history of suicide prevention week. So I’ll ink that here. I hope that this week has helped raise awareness to prevent suicide and help reduce the stigma around mental health. Just a little extra compassion from people can go a long way.
Just because suicide prevention week is ending, it doesn’t mean that I’ll be talking any less about mental health issues. I’m still going strong with DBT and therapy. If you have any topics that you’d like to hear about, please let me know in the comments or stop by the DBT Discord to join us. I really appreciate everyone being here and look forward to doing more posts!
