Suicide is the leading cause of the death in the United States. Close to 800,000 people die due to suicide every year. This is why September has been made Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month.
Although more people are opening up about their mental health struggles and journeys, there still is a heavy stigma around suicide. Suicide is a global issue, and more awareness about it needs to be made.
The medical industry has been paying more attention to suicide lately. While there are many treatments for depression and anxiety, there are very few treatments that provide immediate help. For suffering from suicidal thoughts and behavior, waiting the weeks or months for traditional medications to begin working is time they do not have. Thankfully there are newer treatments such as ketamine infusion therapy being sued now, which quickly and effectively treat suicidal thoughts.
Make sure to support Suicide Prevention Awareness Month by sharing your story, reaching out to loved ones that may be struggling, or contacting us to get help today.
