City recognizes Suicide Prevention Month

At its Sept. 11 meeting, the Carpinteria City Council proclaimed September 2023 as Suicide Prevention Month. The risk of suicide decreases when mental health well-being is focused on and promoted. The City promotes awareness of the importance of tending to our mental health, acknowledges that those living with mental health disabilities are deserving of care and understanding, and recognizes the need to address suicide prevention on a daily basis. We works collaboratively with Santa Barbara County Department of Behavior Wellness, County Public Health and HopeNet of Carpinteria and appreciates the resources and services they offer to the Carpinteria community in preventing suicide.
