For 40 years we’ve been talking about preventing suicide. We’ve driven conversations that break down stigma, promote togetherness, empower people in crisis, comfort the bereaved, equip caregivers and call people to action.
Our library began collecting suicide information in 1981, and our collection now boasts close to 50,000 items. We started training people to skillfully respond to those who are considering suicide in 1983. We have run one workshop every business day since then – nearly 9000 workshops training more than 160,000 participants. That’s a lot of conversations.
