Dear Neighbor,

There are several important events taking place in September and I wanted to make sure they were on your calendar. Most importantly, please note that September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for   ages 10 to 34 and the fourth leading cause of death for ages 35 to 54, and is too often the result of mental health conditions that affect people when they are most vulnerable. If your or someone you love needs help, please call 211 or the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
