Becky Stoll, LCSW

Nashville, TN – September is National Suicide Prevention Month, a time for mental health advocates, prevention organizations, survivors and community members to come together and raise awareness about suicide prevention.

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, and the national suicide rate has increased by 35 percent since 1999. Although we will not have death by suicide data for 2020 for some time, events taking place this year, most notably the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, have without doubt had significant psychological and social effects.

How Labor Day Started

 

Labor DayWashington, D.C. – On the first Monday in September, Labor Day is observed. It is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.

It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886.
