Health Beyond Your Mouth

At Piedmont Periodontics we want our patients to be healthy from head-to-toe. September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness of this often taboo topic. Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. Although common, suicidal thoughts should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious mental health issues.

In honor of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we are taking inventory of self-care activities in midtown Atlanta.

Light | September 9 @ 6:30 PM
AFSP Georgia invites you to a candlelight vigil to commemorate those who have lost their lives and recognize those who have survived. Join the free virtual event to learn more about suicide prevention and ways you can support this important effort.

Listen | September 28 @7:30 pm
Enjoy the sounds of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra surrounded by community. Head to Piedmont Park’s Oak Hill for the Orchestra’s first Piedmont Park performance since 2019. This year’s free outdoor concert will feature musical favorites from Gershwin’s An American in Paris to Bernstein’s West Side Story.

Move | Tuesdays @10am
With 200+ acres of green space, Piedmont Park offers unlimited fitness opportunities. Guided fitness classes hold you accountable and keep you motivated. Explore popular Piedmont Park paths for 45-minutes each week throughout the Fall season. Meet at the south entrance to the Active Oval.

Giving Kitchen provides emergency assistance for food service workers through financial support and a network of community resources. Their Stability Network has connected thousands of people to resources related to mental health, physical health and wellness, substance abuse and addiction, dental and vision, employment, housing and utilities, family and social services, financial services, and legal and immigration services.

Piedmont Periodontics has made a donation to Giving Kitchen in honor of Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

If you or someone you know is having a mental health emergency, call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or call 911 immediately.
