September’s designation as suicide awareness prevention month was recognized with a proclamation during the Brazos County commission’s August 16 meeting.

The proclamation, read by county judge Duane Peters, included activities taking place at Texas A&M that includes an awareness event Wednesday, September 7, from 6 until 8 p.m. at Rudder Plaza.

Commissioners were also reminded by general counsel Bruce Erratt about the new 9-8-8 suicide prevention hotline number.

Commissioner Steve Aldrich also noted that suicide rates among veterans “are significantly out of proportion with the rest of our population”.
