Suicide is preventable
People who think about suicide don’t want to die – they want the pain of living to end.
Caring interventions save lives
The vast majority of people who receive a caring intervention do not re-attempt. People considering suicide want an active listening ear more than anything else.
You can help
Caring conversations are powerful connectors – learn how to identify someone who is struggling and skillfully respond.
For over 40 years we’ve been equipping people with the knowledge and skills to respond to a person considering suicide.
Education is one of few best practices in suicide prevention. Help us educate to save lives.
