#BeThe1To – the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s message for National Suicide Prevention Month and beyond, which helps spread the word about actions we can all take to prevent suicide. The Lifeline network and its partners are working to change the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention, to actions that can promote healing, help and give hope. Together, we can prevent suicide by learning to help ourselves, help others, seek consultation from trained providers (hotlines and clinicians) and to seek hospital care when necessary. We know that there is something we can all do to prevent suicides. We know that these actions are things that people are doing every day to help themselves and others to get through their darkest moments. #BeThe1To show that people can take actions to help themselves and others to prevent suicide. Join us now.
