Suicide is a leading cause of death. It’s also preventable. In U.S. alone, we have the ability to save nearly 45,000 lives every year. Globally, that number is closer to 800,000.
But, hold up. Before we get to saving the world, let’s check-in. If you’re feeling like ending your life, you can always ask for help managing your emotions. Asking for help is brave. You are brave. You are valuable You are important. And, the world needs you.
The Yellow Ribbon campaign is a nationally recognized campaign designed to bring awareness of suicide and suicide prevention strategies. This training can be completed in 90 minutes and will equip first responders with information about signs/risk factors related to suicide and suicide ideation in young people and adults. Students and staff will learn how to stabilize crisis situations and refer those in need to the appropriate helpers to ensure their safety.
