Take 5 to Save Lives in Support of Suicide Prevention

The Greendale Health Department is asking everyone to Take 5 to Save Lives! Take 5 to Save Lives is a public awareness campaign run by the National Council for Suicide Prevention in support of public awareness events including World Suicide Prevention Day, National Suicide Prevention Month, and National Suicide Prevention Week. The goal of the campaign is to encourage everyone to take five action steps that focus on preventing the tragedy of suicide. Check out to learn more. The five steps include:

  1. LEARN the warning signs, risk factors, and protective factors of suicide. 
  2. KNOW how to help yourself and others who may be struggling
  3. DO raise awareness, advocate for change, volunteer, and practice self-care
  4. TALK about suicide, dispel myths, and reduce stigma.
  5. SHARE Take 5 to Save Lives with others.  

Make a difference by taking these 5 easy action steps and joining a worldwide movement to save lives.
