Suicide/Suicide Prevention-Stigma


Sanilac County Community Mental Health, along with the Sanilac County Suicide Prevention Committee, and the #stopthebull program, is launching a three-month “You Matter” campaign.  The goal of this campaign is to showcase how each and every one of us makes a difference and impacts one another.  Whether you have a mental illness, a developmental/intellectual disability, a physical disability, or none of the above, You Matter; you make a difference.  Each month will highlight different topics with an article each week.
