September is Suicide Prevention Month. 

This month aims to raise awareness and break down the stigma oftentimes related to suicide. In addition to shifting public perception, this month is also used to spread hope and vital information to people affected by suicide. The goal is to ensure that all individuals, friends, and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and to seek help.

Mark Your Calendar and join Tiffany Huggins, our Behavioral Health Specialist, every Tuesday in September for Talk About It Tuesdays, a webinar series that will go over the warning signs of suicide, breaking the stigma, where to get help, and how to support others.

  • Sept 5 at Noon Recognizing the Warning Signs
  • Sept 12 at Noon Breaking the Stigma
  • Sept 19 at Noon Substance Abuse and Suicide
  • Sept 26 at Noon Risk/Protective Factors

We will also have a “Mental Health Minute” available each week with key information from each of the webinars. Access these by scanning the QR code below with your phone.

At Atlantic, we actively work to maintain a culture where those struggling with their mental health do not feel alone. Research shows that 8 in 10 adults in the U.S. are eager to learn how to help someone who may be suicidal. Here are a few of those people from across our company’s footprint.
