OUR BELIEFS

  • We refuse to accept the unacceptable number of suicide deaths
  • Suicide is preventable not inevitable.
  • Suicide is a public health issue not a mental health one- metal illness and suicide are related but not synonymous.
  • The only way to prevent suicide is to talk about it, openly and directly.
  • Telling suicidal people to get help is not enough. We must be trained and learn how to identify when they need help and then promptly provide it.
