“Safer Homes” signifies a home in which lethal means are unavailable to a suicidal individual. “Suicide Aware” signifies the universal need to educate people about suicide prevention and action steps everyone can take today.
Putting a practical barrier between a suicidal person and the means they plan to use to end their life can interrupt their path to suicide.
