September is Suicide Awareness Month

September is Suicide Awareness Month, and we want to share what resources are available if you or someone you know is considering suicide, or if you’re concerned someone is at risk. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline “provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.” Call toll free: 1-800-273-TALK, or visit https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/.

Local crisis centers also can connect your loved one to services.

Time for Flu Shots

With flu season starting as early as October, now’s the time to get your flu shot to make sure you’re protected. This year, flu shots are available for those ages 18 and up on a walk-in basis at all Lifetime Health Pharmacies for your convenience.

The vaccine is also available for all ages by appointment at your Lifetime Health office. For pediatric patients (under 18), please contact the doctor’s office for an appointment.

All Lifetime Health locations will use vaccines that are preservative free and have high dose for seniors available.
