World Suicide Prevention Day

Suicide is a complex social and health crisis that impacts every community on the planet. In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), we’re creating conversations that move people from hopelessness to help, encouraging solutions that support people through their darkest moments, and working to help fight for more time—so that healing and recovery can happen. To our friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors, and even strangers: we want another day with you.

700,000 people die by suicide each year. It claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined. Learn More


Suicide Impacts Us All And It Does Not Discriminate

Mental health affects everyone, but some groups are disproportionately impacted by suicide, with contributing factors of discrimination across race, gender identity, sexual identity, and so on.

We created space on the TWLOHA Podcast to have conversations that challenge the lie that says we can’t or shouldn’t talk about suicide. May the stories shared remind you that you are not alone and inform us of how we can support one another.

Our goal is to raise $250,000 for treatment and recovery. This will make it possible to provide 3,500+ individual counseling and group therapy sessions and to fund 45,000 searches on our FIND HELP Tool.

Why these counseling scholarships matter:

“It means that I have a safe and brave space where I can confront my fears, heal from my past trauma and give myself grace as I work toward becoming a better version of myself."

“This scholarship has made it possible for me to explore to great depths what has been driving me unknowingly; to understand myself with compassion; to step more fully into who I truly am so that I can now be of greater support to myself and the lives of the people around me. As a veteran of the U.S. Army, I humbly salute all your supporters for their generous, heartfelt gifts to help me move forward with my life.”

“It was life changing. A pivotal point in my life because therapy can be inaccessible for me as a Black woman. So to be able to get free therapy from a person that could relate to my experiences was everything I needed and more.”

“The scholarship was so helpful to me at a time when due to the pandemic and joblessness I had dipped into a depression. Being able to continue therapy without worrying about cost has gotten me through this difficult time, both financially and emotionally."

“It gave me hope for treatment when finishing up my last semester at school. It meant someone cared enough to support me and helped me feel deserving of getting help. It meant there were good people in the world who were fighting to help those who had obstacles to afford treatment and get the help they needed.”

“It was empowering to be validated and supported in wanting to seek treatment and to be seen by an incredible organization. It made me feel connected to something bigger than myself and the ghosts of my pasts.”

“Without the TWLOHA scholarship for counseling, I truly believe I would not be here today. It saved my life in so many ways and I am beyond grateful for this organization and everything the staff does day in and day out, along with how giving donors are—no matter how 'small' a donation may seem—it made a huge difference in my life. Thank you.”
