The HAPPY Lab is spending this month gaining more awareness on suicide and suicide prevention.
September is National Suicide Awareness Month.
Research shows people who are having thoughts of suicide feel relief when someone asks after them in a caring way.
Findings suggest acknowledging and talking about suicide may reduce rather than increase suicidal ideation.
If you or someone you know may be having thoughts of suicide or are facing emotional distress, reach out to 988 for 24/7 confidential support.
