Suicide Prevention Week - September 9th 2012, 12:51 AM

Hey guys, I just wanted to post that starting tomorrow (Sep. 9) is the start of Suicide Prevention Week. And it will end on on Sep. 15 (at least in the U.S.)

So if you guys could please take the pledge to prevent suicide @ http://b1.jasonfoundation.com/

If you know anybody that is having a rough time and is thinking about suicide please let them know its not too late.

"Someone you know may need a friend."

On the website there are statistics about youth suicide and how to prevent it. As you might know suicide is 100% preventable!

Listen to your friends when they need to talk to you about their problems or thoughts of suicide
Insist that they be honest with you
Feelings-share them with each other
Extend a helping hand and go with them to a responsible adult

If you'd like to learn more about suicide prevention, you could also watch the "Why" music video by Rascal Flatts with a bunch of statistics in the video and quotes that could make you feel better about life.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nd-2EkA4LgI hopefully this link will work and take you to the video. If it doesn't you can go to youtube and type in "Every 40 seconds someone asks why"

Once again I hope you guys really take the pledge to help end youth suicide (or any suicide, the Jason Foundation is a little more focused on youth)

Love this <3
I just knew that the 10th is Suicide Awareness Day, and you are to wear yellow and/or write love on your wrist. So I am going to try to do both (I have to go buy a yellow t-shirt).

Took the pledge and shared it on my Tumblr and Twitter

Re: Suicide Prevention Week - September 9th 2012, 10:01 PM

Aw thank you guys sooo much!!! I have my bracelets for LGBT (i heard that like 30% of suicides are LGBT related) and I have a bracelet to vow to stop bullying ( which surprisingly only from what I have learned about 5-25% of suicides are caused by bullying. and that's because usually people who are bullied suffer from other things.) So thank you again, it really means a lot!

This is wonderful (:
I wouldn't say that I am or have ever been truly suicidal, but several of my few friends are/have been.
I used to be a cutter, but I've been clean for 7 months and hope to keep that number growing (:
It's truly sad when someone gets pushed too far... I just hope that wherever they are now they are truly happy (:
Tomorrow I'm wearing Yellow and writing LOVE on my wrists to show my support ^-^

There is going to be a lot of talk tomorrow (September 10th)... If I don't want to talk about anything people might look at me and think I'm suicidal (which I'm not anymore), but it's just because I lost a friend (who talked me out of suicide) 7 months ago (on the 6th). I just came to ease with everything, and I'm afraid talking about what happen to her instead of how amazing she IS, is going to be triggering. What should I do? Just hearing the word "suicide" or hearing her name makes me think about her.

Im wearing yellow tomorrow and writing love on my wrist. I also took the pledge.





From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"

I wore yellow jeans to school despite the fact that they're overly large around my waist
And I wrote 'LOVE' on my wrist
One of my best friends is battling suicidal thoughts and actions and she loved this cause today. I'm sure she's not the only one. Thank you for sharing :')

I wrote LOVE on my wrist, and would've worn yellow, except I couldn't find anything. It made me sad though, that out of the hundreds of people I saw at me school today, no one else seemed to be supporting this cause. I'm hoping since there's a couple thousand people there, I just didn't see the right people.

Thank you guys for all of your support!

Yeah I was upset not to see so much yellow! Only like two peole that I know wore yellow today and knew what it was for! I literally went up to my friends today like "WHY AREN'T YOU WEARING YELLOW!?!"

And at lunch my friend asked me about suicide awareness because she had "love" on her wrist. So yeah like 3 other people participated in my grade!
