Veterans are strong and resilient members of our community — but even the strongest of us need support. Veterans who are in crisis or having thoughts of suicide, and those who know a Veteran in crisis, can call the Veterans Crisis Line. Confidential support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Call 800-273-8255 and Press 1, text to 838255 or chat online at VeteransCrisisLine.net/Chat.
This week is National Suicide Prevention Week, and today is World Suicide Prevention Day. The North Andover Community Support Services department would like to use this opportunity to help educate people about suicide and to start an open and honest dialogue about mental health. This video serves as a reminder that each of us, regardless of our past, struggles, triumphs, and failures, ALL Make Today Better. Please go to twloha.com for more information.
