US Coast Guard Morale Day
July 26, 2018
Representatives from “Safer Homes, Suicide Aware” will be at the event informing guests how to make their home safer and prevent a suicide long before a crisis occurs.
Medication locking devices as well as firearm locking devices will be distributed for free.
“Safer Homes” signifies a home in which lethal means are unavailable to a suicidal individual. “Suicide Aware” signifies the universal need to educate people about suicide prevention and action steps everyone can take today.
Putting a practical barrier between a suicidal person and the means they plan to use to end their life can interrupt their path to suicide.
