As most of you will know, I lost my little sister to suicide a little over 19 years ago now. She was 14, and it broke my family's heart to lose her so young and unexpectedly. For many years I numbed myself from having to deal with the pain of losing my sister and other childhood traumas. I've had the opportunity over the past couple of months to be of service as a counselor on the Suicide Prevention Center Crisis Line (1-800-273-8255).

I never would have been able to reach outside myself and try to help other people without the gift of recovery.Through my time in recovery I know personally how healing and powerful just listening to someone share their darkest thoughts is. On the crisis line we sit with our callers in the darkness instead of rushing to “fix” them.

I’m raising money for our annual ALIVE AND RUNNING 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention on Sunday, September 29, 2019.

Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you, Nicole
***********************************************************************
Suicide rates nationwide have risen over 30% among almost every age group, gender, ethnicity and financial status. In 2018, more than 47,000 Americans died by suicide—more than by car accidents or homicide. And for every death by suicide, about 30 people attempt it.

Please join me in supporting Didi Hirsch’s 21st annual Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention on Sunday, Sept. 29.

The event is the only one that supports Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center—the first and most comprehensive in the United States and a national resource for healing and hope. Their doors are open to anyone who has been touched to suicide—regardless of their ability to pay. But they need your help to continue providing their lifesaving services.

Please register, donate, sponsor or volunteer for Alive & Running today.
Your support helps:

- SAVE LIVES by training crisis counselors for our 24/7 multilingual Crisis Line, where calls have quadrupled in the last 10 years;

- STRENGTHEN THE SAFETY NET by teaching more students, teachers, parents, firefighters, police officers and mental health professionals to recognize and respond to warning signs;

- PROVIDE HEALING by offering more therapy and support groups to suicide attempt and loss survivors, and special groups for teens bereaved by suicide;

- ADVANCE THE FIELD by partnering with university researchers developing and testing new programs in suicide prevention.

Founded in 1958, Didi Hirsch’s Suicide Prevention Center has innovated many of the strategies that are used at other centers around the United States—and world. In response to rising demand, Didi Hirsch relocated its Center to a new building in Century City last year. Since we opened the doors, many people have seen the sign and come in for help.

With your support, we can save more lives! Please register, donate or sponsor today!
