Suicide Prevention Month
September 1st starts the beginning of Suicide prevention month. Keep an eye out for green lighting on bridges and buildings around Massachusetts during this month. Also, look out for Samaritans’ MBTA digital signs and car cards with the Suicide Prevention Ribbon.
Samaritans’ mission is to reduce the incidence of suicide by alleviating despair, isolation, distress and suicidal feelings among individuals in our community, 24 hours a day; to educate the public about suicide prevention; and to reduce the stigma associated with suicide. We accomplish this through services that emphasize confidential, non-judgmental, and compassionate listening.
