1 FOR 121

1 FOR 121 empowers individuals to reduce suicide rates by being proactive on prevention, no longer waiting for a point of crisis to start the conversation on our mental health.

In the United States, about 44,000 people die die each year from suicide. That averages about 121 suicide completions each day.

1 FOR 121 is about raising $121 to commemorate those who have died by suicide. The funds raised will go towards programs to help educate the community on mental health. Through this, we hope that we can educate and help lower the completion rates to under 100 within the next couple years.

Prevention starts with a conversation. Start your own campaign, share your story, and take action in your community.

Suicide is a preventable mental health crisis. The primary obstacle to suicide prevention is the silence of stigma.

Stigma isn’t just a buzzword. Stigmas are social and cultural factors that try to dictate how we express ourselves and compel individuals to be silent on their internal experiences.

Proactive prevention is about creating an environment that doesn’t wait for someone to reach a point of crisis to address their mental health.

We will reduce suicide rates by

  • raising the visibility of resources through outreach to break the silence of stigma,

  • increasing mental health education to change social policy,

  • and empowering communities to impact institutional policy.

We can reduce rates by being proactive and letting others know that it's ok not to be ok.
