September is National Suicide Prevention Month. A recent issue of the Voice covered ways of identifying, coping and living with depression. You can read the story here.
We also provided an expansive list of resources, including emergency hotlines, LGBT-affirming faith groups, counselors and more. That list is reprinted below.
