Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Every year, the month of October is observed for National Breast Cancer Awareness in order to shine a light on the disease and encourage early detection.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) was founded in October of 1985 and was aimed to promote mammography which is the most effective tool in the fight against breast cancer. This yearly international health campaign is organized by breast cancer charities every October to raise awareness of the disease and increase funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and one day, a cure. NBCAM drives to educate the public about the importance of early screening, testing, and more.

Each Mind Matters | National Suicide Awareness Month is especially important this year as mental health issues have increased considerably due to the pandemic.

The Suicide Prevention Lifeline and other mental health organizations, allies, advocates, and SURVIVORS in the US, and around the world, promote and raise awareness of suicide prevention during the month of September. Now more than ever, we are all trying to protect our mental health and cope with life’s uncertainties. Currently, our country is in the height of a pandemic that exacerbates the national suicide epidemic. Bringing attention to the problem of suicide, this campaign strives to strengthen the fight against suicide and eliminate the stigma surrounding the topic of suicide. Increasing awareness can also encourage people to reach out for mental health support. Making suicide awareness a continued focus, we can educate and engage people about prevention and the warning signs surrounding suicide.

If you or someone you know is going through a crisis, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-TALK (8255).
