Niagara County Recognizes Suicide Prevention Month

September marks National Suicide Prevention Month – a month to remember the lives lost to suicide, the millions of people who have struggled with suicidal ideation, and acknowledge the individuals, families, and communities that have been impacted. It is also a time to raise awareness about suicide prevention and share messages of hope.

If you or someone you know is in need of help, contact our 24 hour Crisis Services at (716) 285-3515 for free confidential support and guidance in accessing the most appropriate resources and/or treatment options available to you based on your needs.  You can also call 9-8-8 for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL), which Niagara County is affiliated.
