September 9-15 is National Suicide Prevention Week

In honor of this week, we would like to thank all our supporters, followers, and donors who help bring the MISSD message of akathisia awareness to the world. Without all of you, we wouldn’t be able to make people aware of the dangerous side effects of many medications, which can ultimately lead to suicidal thoughts and actions. When you or someone you know stops, starts, or changes the dosage of a medication, please be aware of behavioral changes that can lead to suicide, self-harm and violence. If you ever need to speak to a confidential phone line for help please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline  1-800-273-8255.

MISSD is very excited to announce its most recent awareness campaign; signage on CTA busses and trains! MISSD signage will be advertised on 100 trains and busses in the Chicagoland area. We would like to thank YOU, as it is the attention and donations to MISSD that make this important programming possible with the ultimate goal to prevent needless deaths.  We hope this signage will reach an even bigger population and create more awareness about medication-induced reactions and akathisia.
