Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring mental illness into the light. To end the stigma and erase the fear of talking about it. We want to share the stories of those who struggle every day. The people who need to find their voice again. We want to help you get your story out there. We want you to know that it’s never to late.

Suicide Statistics - 2017

47,173 - Number of Americans that took their own life

1,300,000 - Estimated number of suicide attempts

129 - Average number of suicides per day


Killing oneself is, anyway, a misnomer. We don’t kill ourselves. We are simply defeated by the long, hard struggle to stay alive. When somebody dies after a long illness, people are apt to say, with a note of approval, “He fought so hard.” And they are inclined to think, about a suicide, that no fight was involved, that somebody simply gave up. This is quite wrong.
— Sally Brampton, Shoot the Damn Dog: A Memoir of Depression
