Fall Colors, September 2015

Fall Colors, September 2015

September was Suicide Prevention Awareness month.  Now that September has ended, awareness still needs to continue.  For me, my experience in a psychiatric hospital was helpful:  it gave me a break from my stressful life, and it also made me realize how I was really doing and that I really needed to prioritize my mental health. However, I wouldn’t want to go back. I know that others have had experiences at hospitals that did not serve them.  Huffington Post on why our approach to suicide prevention needs to change.
