Suicide Awareness Voices of Education - SAVE
We at SAVE believe that suicide is preventable and that suicide prevention works. In order to accomplish our mission and goals, we use the public health model along with a media campaign to raise awareness of suicide. We use an educational approach to dispel the myths about suicide, and to let others know about the realities surrounding what in 1999 the former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher called a "public health crisis." If you are suicidal or you think someone you know is, we want you to know that help is available and recovery is possible! Start by learning the warning signs, and do whatever you can to get yourself or someone you care about to the help they need so that they can return to living a fully functioning life.
