September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day! This year our
theme is Passport for Living (#Passport4L). CSP’s Passport for Living
illustrates healthy travelling through life. Taking care of ourselves and
building personal resiliency are key to suicide prevention, and everyday
activities can contribute to positive mental health!

We have many exciting things going on this WSPD:

WSPD Challenge
#WSPD2015, we challenge you to do things to boost your mental health! Everyday activities can contribute to positive mental health, so download your own Passport for Living to start checking off your mentally healthy activities.  Feel free to come up with your
own activities – ours are just guidelines! Share a picture of your mentally
healthy activity to Twitter using the hashtag #Passport4L; we would love to see
how you affirm life in everyday activities.
The challenge starts Sept. 10 so stop by our website then to download your #Passport4L!
