The psychologist, Gilberto Garcia, gives a presentation to "AEVP Renato Gonçalves Rodrigues" detention center staff members about suicide, depression, how to recognize the symptoms and what to do about it in Americana state of São Paulo, on Sep. 12, 2019.

As part of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, Brazil's Yellow September, a time to raise awareness on this urgent and stigmatized topic. Today I went to "AEVP Renato Gonçalves Rodrigues" detention center in Americana to talk with the institution’s staff members about "Suicide“.

Always an excellent opportunity to talk about such an important and current topic.

In addition to shifting public perception, we use this month to spread hope and vital information to people affected by suicide. Our goal is to ensure that individuals, friends, and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and seek help.
