Mayor's Corner: Suicide Prevention Month

As we enter the month of September, we turn our attention to a critical and deeply significant topic: suicide prevention. In recognition of National Suicide Prevention Month, we aim to raise awareness, foster understanding, and provide support to those who may be struggling with mental health challenges. Together, we can make a difference and be proactive in striving to prevent such tragedies from occurring. 

Recent discussions surrounding suicide prevention have emphasized the importance of breaking the stigma that often surrounds mental illness and suicidal thoughts. It is crucial to create open, safe spaces for conversations and provide resources for those who need support. 

One significant development in this effort is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s new three-digit number - 988. This accessible number provides easier access to critical mental health services, ensuring that those in crisis can quickly connect with trained professionals who can offer help and support.

During this month and beyond, let us stand together as neighbors and friends in promoting mental well-being, fostering empathy, and creating a community where everyone feels safe, supported, and understood. Let us strive to break the silence, provide resources and compassion, and reinforce the message that no one should face their struggles alone. Reach out, connect, and let us unite to prevent suicide and strengthen the bonds that make South Jordan such a wonderful community.
