Suicide Prevention Month
For 2022, San Mateo County, Star Vista, and partners are promoting the statewide theme of “Take Action for Suicide Prevention: Thriving at all Ages.” Throughout our communities many people are continuing to experience mental health challenges, trauma, burn-out, and fatigue due to the prolonged impacts of the pandemic and natural disasters.
To support Thriving At All Ages, Californians are encouraged to recognize the importance of strengthening resiliency, protective factors, and physical and emotional wellness throughout the lifespan and at different life stages. To learn more about the statewide theme, please visit SuicideisPreventable.org.
Each year, San Mateo County Behavioral Health & Recovery Services’ Office of Diversity & Equity (ODE) and Suicide Prevention Committee (SPC) promotes free events throughout the month of September to promote Suicide Prevention Month. All events are free and open to the public. This year events will be in-person and/or virtual.
