An Open Letter In Honor of Suicide Prevention Month
Before you keep reading, we just want to take a moment to tell you we’re so happy you’re here, alive, right here, right now. This month is suicide prevention month, and we’ve been thinking a lot about mental health & suicide prevention. Finding the right words for this letter has been hard, but we think you’ll find a bit of hope as you keep reading :)
We want you to know that no matter what it is you’re feeling, thinking, or going through, you’re not alone. Please reach out, ask for help, and talk about how you feel. This too will pass and, until then, we hope you find the strength to get through it 🤞
Today we’re thinking of all the people who have experienced suicidal thoughts, survived suicidal attempts, have died from suicide, have supported loved ones feeling suicidal, have lost loved ones to suicide, or have supported loved ones grieving from losing others to suicide.
An important step in suicide prevention is fighting the stigma around suicide which can keep people who experience suicidal thoughts, have attempted suicide, or are grieving the loss of a loved one to suicide, from seeking support. Let’s continue creating safe spaces for people to share what they think and how they feel to fight stigmas around mental health & suicide. If you or anyone you know needs professional support, you can find a list of helplines in our resources section here: https://nowandme.com/resources/helplines.
This month is an important reminder to check in with yourself, and to check in with the people you love. Every single person is fighting a battle (honestly more like 100 🥴 thanks for that 2021) you know nothing about so send someone this post, ask them how they are, and tell them you love them! You might put a smile on someone’s face, or you might save a life. :)
