September is Suicide Prevention Month.

Gunma prefecture has designated September as “Suicide Prevention Month” in order to spread correct knowledge about suicide and mental illness and to eliminate prejudice against them. Oizumi Town is also carrying out public awareness activities, so let’s take this opportunity to think about suicide prevention.

For Suicide Prevention

In the year 2020, 21081 people in Japan including 376 people in Gunma Prefecture took their own lives. It is said that suicide is the result of  being driven psychologically by multiple factors such as health problems, financial problems, and family problems. If you are tired but unable to sleep for more than 2 weeks, or if you continue to feel physically and mentally unwell, please consult your doctor or a consulting organization as soon as possible.
