September is National Suicide Prevention Month. 2-1-1 Big Bend answers this region’s calls for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. About 100 people a month reach out for help by calling this hotline and about half of those calls are related to suicide. Our trained counselors listen, assess risk and help our callers make rational decisions. By doing so, we save hundreds of lives each year. Please join us and our local partner NAMI Tallahassee (National Alliance on Mental Illness) for its inaugural “Bluebird Run and Walk for Brookie B” on Labor Day, Monday, September 7. Details and registration information can be found here: www.bluebirdrun.com.
