VA Launches #BeThere Campaign
September marks the beginning of Suicide Prevention Month. The Department of Veterans Affairs launched today a new campaign called #BeThere to remind people that you do not have to be a mental health professional to save a life. The press release states, “We want to let people know that things they do every day, like calling an old friend or checking in with a neighbor, are strong preventive factors for suicide because they help people feel less alone. That’s what this campaign is about – encouraging people to be there for each other.”
