The City of Mt. Juliet presented the Wilson County Health Council a proclamation Monday night declaring September as Suicide Prevention Awareness Month in the City of Mt. Juliet.
Their council began a suicide awareness campaign in 2010 with events to remember those that have been lost to suicide and they now have a Remembrance Tree Campaign.
Mt. Juliet‘s is located in front of the post office on N. Mt. Juliet Road and allows individuals to take a piece of ribbon, write the name of someone that they lost to suicide and then tie that piece of ribbon on an identified tree/structure as a private moment.
