Presidential Proclamation — World Suicide Prevention Day, 2015

“Suicide prevention is the responsibility of all people. One small act — the decision to reach out to your neighbor, offer support to a friend, or encourage a veteran in need to seek help — can make a difference. It can help energize a national conversation and a changing attitude across America. If you are hurting, know this: You are not forgotten. You are never alone. Your country is here for you, and help is available. As we pause to raise awareness of the importance of suicide prevention, let us remember all those we have lost and the loved ones they left behind. As one people, we stand with all who struggle with mental illness, and we continue our work to prevent this heartbreak in our communities.”
