September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and Child & Family Services will be having their "Never Give Up" Dress Down Campaign; a Suicide Awareness Challenge.
CFS is part of the Zero Suicide Initiative, a commitment to safer suicide care in health and behavioral health care systems. It is a call-to-action based on the belief that no suicide is fated.
In the month of September, CFS would love for you to help them spread awareness on suicide. There is no cost at all, all you need is a camera phone and a social media account.
There are 3 simple steps to follow.
1. Host a dress down day during the month of September.
2. Wear purple and/or teal and take a picture with our Suicide Awareness sign.
3. Upload your photo on social media and tag Child & Family Services to show your support and spread awareness! CFS will share it on their pages!
Once you’ve chosen a date, CFS will send you a laminated sign to use in your picture along with some suicide awareness pins.
If you cannot dress down, simply taking a picture with the CFS sign is just as good! You can also print out the photo with this post and use it for your picture, as it is here.
For more information, call Brittney Carvalho at (508) 742-1034 or email her at Bcarvalho@cfservices.org.
We can all help prevent suicide. Help CFS spread the word this September.
