September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and EWU Human Resources is providing information and resources to help everyone learn more about how we can support ourselves and those we care about to prevent suicides in our families and communities.

Here are some of the EAP resources to help:

There are free learning opportunities available through the University of Washington’s “Forefront Suicide Prevention” to educate staff, mental health providers and firearms owners.
