World Suicide Prevention Day: “We’ll See You Tomorrow”

By To Write Love on Her Arms

We'll See You TomorrowWorld Suicide Prevention Day is September 10, which coincides with National Suicide Prevention Week (September 7-13) in America. We are proud to announce this year’s campaign, which is inspired by words that closed out last year’s “No One Else Can Play Your Part” campaign:

We’ll See You Tomorrow

“Above all else, we choose to stay. We choose to fight the darkness and the sadness, to fight the questions and the lies and the myth of all that’s missing. We choose to stay, because we are stories still going. Because there is still some time for things to turn around, time for surprises and for change. We stay because no one else can play our part.

Life is worth living.

We’ll see you tomorrow.”

Those words were written by our founder, Jamie Tworkowski, on the final night of National Suicide Prevention Week. When our team got together to start dreaming up something new, we kept coming back to “We’ll See You Tomorrow.” Hope always involves tomorrow. It’s choosing to believe that things can change, that tomorrow can look different than today.

“We’ll See You Tomorrow” will run from now until September 13. Over the course of the month leading up to World Suicide Prevention Day, we’re partnering with other organizations and with people everywhere to challenge the stigma surrounding suicide.

Our goal is to raise $75,000 via Classy, all of which will go to treatment and recovery.

WSPD pack

Here’s how you can help:

Buy the World Suicide Prevention Day pack.

Each pack includes a shirt, a bracelet, 3 poster prints, a response card, and 15 info cards. These materials feature our “We’ll See You Tomorrow” design printed in orange, which is often associated with suicide prevention. All of these items are meant to equip you to talk about suicide prevention in your community. Use them as conversation starters, encouraging reminders, and informative tools to share with others. Finally, be sure to wear your shirt and bracelet on World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10)!

Join the conversation on social media.

Join the conversation and post photos using #Tomorrow15 & #WSPD15. Be sure to tag @TWLOHA on Twitter & Instagram. You can also download our social media assets to change your profile picture, Facebook cover image, and Twitter header image. There will also be specific ways to participate during National Suicide Prevention Week (#NSPW15), and we will share those with you as it gets closer.

Fundraise for suicide prevention.

Help us challenge the stigma of mental health by providing support and treatment for those affected by it. From now until the end of NSPW, every dollar raised through our NSPW 2015 StayClassy page will go directly to funding treatment and recovery. As our way of saying thanks, the top individual fundraiser will win one of the following prizes:

2 VIP tickets for you and a friend to Vans Warped Tour in the city closest to you. We’ll cover your travel expenses and give you $200 worth of TWLOHA merch.

or

2 VIP tickets for you and a friend to HEAVY AND LIGHT in Orlando, FL, complete with round-trip airfare and hotel stay.

or

1 custom poem from Sierra DeMulder

Thank you for supporting TWLOHA.
Thank you for caring about people.
May we continue to fight for the stories around us.
Every story matters.
We’ll see you tomorrow.

    It’s weird. I’ve been struggling with depression etc all my life and for the last two years I’ve been on sick leave because of clinical depression and suicidal behaviour. Still am at a bad place. The reason for my complete breakdown was that I lost my reason for living, the most important being in my live died. It happened September 10th. And I just learned that that’s the World Suicide Prevention Day. Kind of scary.

        As a random human being I wouldn’t mind being an ear for you to vent or for anyone to vent. Everyone needs someone! I just lost my cousin yesterday to mental disorder I know what it’s like and what it can do.

    In 2013 my dad commited suicide, I’m so thankful to anyone who’s funded or even shared this event. This topic needs more recognition and help to erase the stigma. Again thank you to everyone, hopefully one day everyone who is struggling can get the help they deserve and not go through the pain that my family and I have with loosing a loved one this way xx

    It’s said over and over there is someone to talk to and it’s true but you have to take the option of talking. My cousin lost his battle with mental disorder yesterday and I can’t help feeling we should have done more. This needs to be cured!!!

    Hi,
    This is a subject that I’m very passionate about and I’m planning to get together with a few friends downtown to pass out info cards and spark conversation. I’ve already purchased the level 2 pack, but I was wondering if it is possible for you to make info cards available for bulk purchase. Everyone says “go big or go home” and I’m praying for big. I want to get cards to as many people as possible and equip my friends to do the same.
    Alternatively, a template so that we could print off info cards on our own would be great.

      Hi Vincent,

      We’re so happy to hear that you’ve bought our level 2 pack and want to do as much as you can to spark conversation. Will you email our team at merch@twloha.com about your info card request?

    I am a mother of 3 and a wife and a daughter to an awesome mom. I have suffered anxiety and depression for many years. I have gone through so much in my life. It hurts me to know my oldest daughter is battling the same things I do. I tell myself I need to be strong and be here for my girls and my family. I tell my girls every day that I love them and I Will See Them Tomorrow.

    Your website really tells a story. I have been cutting for 5 years now (Since I was 11) and your website has inspired me to stop.

    You know, some depressed people (and ______) use food for comfort and because they do they don’t fit in the usual XS to 3x range. I wish TWLOHA would understand that and start carrying at least a few of their shirts in larger, meaning 4x-5x sizes.

    Sou brasileira, assisti o filme hj pela primeira vez, me indentifiquei muito pq sou bipolar. Tentei suicidio várias vezes, fui internada por várias vezes, me auto mutilo, corto meus braços e minhas pernas. Estou sozinha, ninguem entende o que eu sinto o porque hajo de forma diferente, as pessoas simplesmente me julgam sem ao menos tentar entender.
    Não sou feliz, e não queria estar aqui mas pelos meus filhos tento acordar e dormir todos os dias. É bom saber que não sou a única, mas ao mesmo tempo e triste saber que existe outros pessoas tao sozinhas e confusas como eu, tentando achar seu lugar no mundo e vivendo um dia de cada vez, sem ter a certeza se tera o amanhã.

    Hello,
    I am currently writing a one act play for my students that deals with suicide, and most importantly, suicide prevention. We have lost several young people in our student body over the course of a few short years, and it is time to take action. I want to know two things – may I quote you in a projection slide, using ” we’ll see you tomorrow?” and secondly, how much to buy about 30 suicide prevention packs? Thanks in advance!
    Amy

      Hi Amy,

      Would you mind emailing merch@twloha.com about the packs?

      As for the slide, you may absolutely quote “We’ll See You Tomorrow” as long as you give credit to the poets (Sierra DeMulder and Tonya Ingram).

    Am just getting acquainted with this movement that i believe is absolutely essential. I came out of a very long bout with serious depression that felt like it was terminal, but came through it, not because I found some wonder cure, but through a very slow process came back to life and now live every day with gratitude. Yes, I still battle despair at times and have personal heartaches with loved ones who are in dark places and struggling, too. Bottom line, we need to stop hiding and realize that there are folks out there who care. Can`t worry about the ones who don`t. We all have our path to walk. We need to have faith in each other and help those who are sent our way to have faith in themselves that they DO have a story to live and to tell and that each life counts. Peace to all of you. Kat
