    Suicide Awareness and Prevention

    Scott Branam, MA, LMHC, MBA 09/07/2021
    September is National Suicide Prevention Month, a time to raise awareness and promote suicide prevention. No suicide threat or attempt should be dismissed or treated lightly. It's important to learn about mental health, self-harm and suicide in order to stop the stigma so that people aren't afraid to talk about their struggles before a crisis occurs.  

    Dr. Scott Branam, Chief Administrative Officer, at Deaconess Cross Pointe discusses warning signs and ways to help in the video below.
