Suicide Awareness Week 2004

Suicide Awareness Week 2004

by Kevin Caruso

National Suicide Awareness Week occurs each year in May. (May is the National Mental Health Awareness Month.) In 2004 Suicide Awareness Week occurs from May 7 through May 17.

Suicide Awareness Week was started by the American Association of Suicidology in 1968. Objectives of the week include raising awareness about all aspects of suicide and offering information on suicide prevention.

There still is a strong stigma associated with suicide, and Suicide Awareness Week helps combat that stigma. offers extensive suicide awareness and prevention information every day of the year, and all individuals, groups, and organizations are strongly encouraged to distribute any or all of the pages on the website (in print media - not on the internet, for nonprofit, noncommercial purposes only) to anyone who would benefit from it.

Suicide awareness and prevention efforts can never end.

You can get involved.

You can continue to learn more about suicide.

You can help others learn about suicide.

You can distribute information about suicide.

You can talk about suicide.

You can increase suicide awareness in your community.

You can prevent suicides.

And you can help eliminate the stigma associated with suicide and mental illness.

Again, feel free to copy any or all of the pages from this website and distribute it to any individual, group, or organization that can benefit from it.

Suicide prevention requires knowledge and action; and you can gain a lot of knowledge about suicide from this site. You will then be better prepared to take action to assist someone who is suicidal if you ever need to.

If you or someone you know is suicidal, please go to the Home Page of this website for immediate help.

Thank you.

I love you.

Take care,

Kevin Caruso
