Madonna Heights Recognizes Suicide Prevention Month

September 16, 2021 / Madonna Heights News

September is the National Suicide Prevention Awareness month. Our Madonna Heights programs used the month to promote meaningful discussions and activities about the concerns and struggles people face and to highlight suicide prevention efforts. Program participants made displays and decorated bulletin boards with the strength-based theme they chose…”Be the One.” “Be the One” – to step up and help those struggling; “Be the One” – to help prevent suicide.

On September 10th, World Suicide Prevention Day, staff and residents from Madonna Heights marched around campus dressed in teal and purple, suicide prevention colors, and wearing symbols of hope to celebrate health and prevention awareness.
