1 in 4 adults in America struggles with a mental health challenge. The Know the Signs Campaign dedicates itself to increasing knowledge and awareness of warning signs, how to talk about suicide, and accessing local resources for support. In a collaborative effort engaging experts and community stakeholders, the overall look and feel of the campaign has now been updated in order to further its mission. 

The Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) is committed to wellness, recovery, and resilience in behavioral health services. In honor of Suicide Prevention Month, ODE created a calendar of events devoted to suicide prevention and awareness. Show your support by attending an upcoming event! 

If you or someone you know is facing a mental health crisis, #BeThe1to call the StarVista Crisis Hotline 650-579-0350 (1-800-273-8255).
