Taking care of your mental health

Taking steps to build and maintain your mental health pays off – it can boost your mood, build resilience, and add to your overall enjoyment of life.

Dealing with suicidal thoughts

Feeling suicidal is not a character defect, and it doesn't mean that you are crazy or weak. It only means that you have more pain than you can cope with right now. With time and support, healing, hope, and help can happen.

Helping someone you’re concerned about

A suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean that help isn't wanted. Talking openly about suicidal thoughts and feelings can save a life.

Our Philosophy

We can all help prevent suicide. By educating ourselves on warning signs, action steps, and resources, we can feel empowered to take action.

We believe in making mental self-care a habit, because caring for your mind is just as important as caring for your body.

Mental illness should get the same recognition as any other illness. This means no more discrimination, no more ignorance, and no more stigma.

We all deserve to thrive. We can enrich the lives of those around us by making mental health a priority in our community.
