Welcome to National Suicide Prevention Week

Your story and your voice matter in challenging the lie that says we can’t talk about suicide. During National Suicide Prevention Week we are proud to stand with you to share the message: You Make Today Better. Throughout the week, we'll point you to a daily action step that will help you educate people about suicide and the ways we can prevent it, create open and honest conversations about mental health, and raise life-saving funds that will give people access to mental health care.

Did you know?

  • 800,000 people die by suicide each year.
  • That's one person every 40 seconds.
  • For each death, there are an additional 25 attempts.

How you can help

Donate or Fundraise

We’ve set a goal to raise $150,000 to sponsor 3,000 counseling sessions and connect thousands of people to local mental health resources using our FIND HELP Tool. When you make a donation or become a fundraiser, you’ll make it possible for people to receive the help they need and deserve. Every dollar matters.

You make today better.
