WHY WE NEED TO START THE CONVERSATION
SUICIDE COMPLETION RATES HAVE SURGED TO A 30-YEAR HIGH.
1 in 4 people report a mental health crisis in their life. Globally, over 800,000 suicides are reported each year, with exponentially more going unreported. In America alone, over 121 individuals complete suicide on a daily basis.
Suicide is a preventable mental health crisis, but we need to be PROACTIVE NOT REACTIVE! For each person we can equip, educate, and empower we can impact thousands. We stand hand-in-hand with our partners to proactively reduce suicide completion rates, reported and unreported. Together we pledge...
1) Break the silence and remove the stigma around mental health and suicide;
2) Get educated and educate others that want to help;
3) Guide those in need of help to the resources available;
4) Create sustainable funds for mental health education and emergency resources.
