Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Preventing Suicide: What can you do to help?

What can you do to help spread awareness of how to prevent suicide?

 

Basically spread the message that RUOK? Day promotes every.single.day.of.the.year! Have important conversations everyday.

 

How can you help your friends and family be more aware?

 

I talk openly with my family and friends about my history of suicidal ideations, which actually had a chain effect in that my fam bam started talking to me about times when they have felt suicidal.

 

How can you help your community be more aware? 

 

Basically encouraging people to engage in these conversations.


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Re: [SPECIAL GUEST] Preventing Suicide: What can you do to help?

@Kimb, awesome, so that is kind of like a positive 'strengths-based' approach to suicide, rather then an avoidance approach?
