Today is World Suicide Prevention Day, according to the Bladen County and North Carolina Health and Human Services Departments.
This day, September 10th, has been designated as a time to remember those affected by suicide, to raise awareness, and to focus efforts on directing treatment to those who need it most.
There is hope and there are resources to get treatment. Let us all take the time for remembrance and check out the resources online to get help:
