New Yard Signs Are Popping Up in Billings. Here’s What They’re Promoting.
Montana has consistently been top 3 in the United States for suicide rate, and a local organization in Billings is working to help those at risk and to raise awareness during suicide prevention month.
According to the press release from Riverstone Health, yard signs will be placed throughout the city and communities by the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Yellowstone County that promotes the new suicide prevention three-digit number 988.
This yard sign campaign is supported and partially funded by RiverStone Health. The coalition also has partnered with Dog Tag Buddies, Ask in Earnest, Billings Urban Indian Health and Wellness Center, and 4Q6 Youth Alliance

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s Out of the Darkness Walk is coming up later this month in Billings.
Yellowstone Valley Walk to Fight Suicide is planned for September 18 at Will James Middle School, 1200 30th Street West. Family, friends, and neighbors will come together to bring suicide out of the darkness.
The Out of the Darkness Community Walk is a journey of remembrance, hope, and support. It unites our communities and provides an opportunity to acknowledge the ways in which suicide and mental health conditions have affected our lives and the lives of those we love and care about.
