On September 12, Board of Supervisors proclaimed September as Suicide Prevention Month.

Three Lived Experience Academy (LEA) graduates shared their suicide survivor stories. Their personal stories emphasize that prevention works, treatment is available and recovery is possible.  

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