September Yellow is a campaign created to raise awareness and mobilize Brazilian society to combat suicide. The initiative is promoted by the Federal Council of Medicine, the Brazilian Association of Psychiatry and the Center for the Valorization of Life (CVV), which offers emotional support to people who go through difficult times. The institution allows contact by telephone 188, e-mail, personal service and virtual chat, to talk anonymously with trained volunteers to provide support to people who are considering suicide.
In addition, September Yellow undertakes actions to promote mental health and publicize centers offering psychological help. The campaign is supported by mass media, businesses and public bodies that promote action and awareness debate.
