Suicide Prevention and Awareness Safety Stand Down Week: September 7-11, 2020

Suicide-Prevention--Awareness-Stand-Down_news-2

September is National Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month and it is critical, now more than ever, to bring awareness that Southern Marin Fire District is participating along side fellow California fire stations in the Behavioral Health Suicide Prevention and Awareness Safety Stand Down. During the week of September 7th through September 11th fire agencies across the state will be setting aside time to conduct exercises and initiate the conversation on mental wellness. 

A firefighter you know could be suffering in silence and your participation in the Suicide Awareness Safety Stand Down could save a life.  It’s time we break the stigma, together. 

Southern Marin Fire District will be sharing a 5-part series from September 7th through 11th in hope to bring suicide awareness to focus. Internally, SMFD will discuss the impact of the job, how to give and get help, and where to go for resources. Together we can help end the stigma that our brothers and sisters are not alone.

Here are a few different key topics that will be discussed:

  1. Spotting the signs

  2. If you see something, say something

  3. Steps for good mental health

  4. Ending the stigma

  5. Changing the culture in the firehouse
