If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health or considering suicide, we have resources to help.
With 1 in 5 Americans experiencing mental illness, it’s imperative that we find new ways to improve access to care. We’re raising money to help launch our online crisis tool, a vital assessment to help families and those in crisis to find help in a cloudy time.
Talk About Depression is all about ending the shame surrounding suicide and mental illness. To learn more and help fund our launch, click below.
9-1-1 operators have a standard protocol when they receive a suicide-related call. This approach helps identify what’s best for the person and how to proceed. We are adapting this approach into a confidential online assessment tool that can help during a crisis. See our prototype now.
While mental health symptoms are different for everyone, one thing is consistent: With social and professional support, people demonstrate significant or full recovery. Getting help can mean a lot of different things, too. With our partner, Psych Hub, we have a library full of resources that discuss a range of topics surrounding mental health and suicide.
On June 30th, 2017 I got a text from my best friend stating “I don’t want to live anymore”. From the time we were 10 years old, I have known him to be the person I can go to with any problem I have. As a high profile athlete and successful in school– I saw him as a success. I never saw this coming, and I wasn’t sure what to do.
1 out of 5 Americans live with a mental illness, yet somehow depression is a really lonely place to be in. With stories that offer hope, humor, and connection, our contributors are proof that it’s OK to talk about depression. Wherever you are in your journey, we’d love to share your story with our community.
