Suicide Prevention Awareness Month Blog and Risk Management Resource
Exacerbated by the global COVID-19 pandemic, the risk of suicide continues to increase as a result of mental health stressors like economic pressures and isolation. This September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in the United States, and in an effort to support and spread awareness of this mental health crisis, we’ll be sharing information on organizations that advocate for and provide resources to those affected by suicide. PRMS is proud to donate to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and highlight the work this organization does in our latest blog post.
