September is National Suicide Prevention Month which aims to bring awareness to suicide and the serious effects it has on family members and friends. While the signs of suicide may not be obvious, it is important to remember that although someone may seem happy on the outside, in private, they may be lonely, sad and depressed. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, seek help immediately from your chain of command or any helping agency on base.
