It’s Suicide Prevention Week
During Suicide Prevention Week individuals and organizations around the country join their
voices to broadcast the message that suicide can be prevented, and to reach as many people as
possible with the tools and resources to support themselves and those around them.

Amador County Unified School District proclaims September 8-14 as Suicide Prevention week in
Amador County.  For the remaining days this week, Argonaut will provide information and
resources for suicide prevention.
Is Suicide Preventable?
Warning signs can be well hidden.  Or perhaps they were not new or uncommon but things that
had been happening for a long time.  Families and friends were concerned and did everything they
could. Knowing the signs is a start, but not enough.  Suicide can be prevented, but we must
recognize that the task is large and cannot fall on the shoulders of one person, one family, one
agency, or one approach.  Only by working together can we see the change we wish to see.
