How Do I Get Involved?
Our advocacy campaigns educate women and the general public on new suicide prevention laws, policies and regulations.
Working independently and closely with various suicide prevention advocacy groups, we volunteer to educate state and local leaders and communities about suicide prevention and mental health illness – we encourage women to volunteer as well. Also, we participate in initiatives that lead to the resolution of mental health biases, social and self-stigma challenges, and physical, verbal, and emotional bullying.
Please contact us for additional information or register for an upcoming advocacy campaign. Volunteer as a Field Advocate for Suicide Prevention and let usknow that you joined the movement!
