September is Suicide Prevention Month and while no one likes to talk about suicide, the first line of suicide prevention is open communication. This month we share how to spark those hard conversations with those you love.
Everyone needs a little encouragement or reminder that someone is thinking about them. Hope Notes provide that opportunity. Our handout provides ready-to-use notes with inspirational sayings to share with others and to start spreading hope – tuck a note into a pocket, a lunchbox, or a desk drawer.

Share a Yellow Ribbon
The Yellow Ribbon program was founded in 1994 by the parents and friends of a bright, funny, loving teen, Mike Emme, who took his life when he did not know the words to say, or how to let someone know he was in trouble and needed help. Share these cards if you need help or with others who may need them.
