I've lost friends to suicide. Several have attempted and survived. Almost everyone I know has suffered from depression. Your mental health is important, which is why I'm raising money for the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center, where they offer bereavement groups, counseling and a 24/7 English/Spanish crisis line (800-273-8255).

I'm asking each of you to donate $5, if you can, which combined would raise over $2,000 to help save lives. Simply click the "donate" button to get started. It's pretty incredible to join forces and make a difference together -- thank you all for your support!

You can also join me on Sunday, September 29th for the Alive & Running 5K Walk/Run for Suicide Prevention!

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.

Many thanks,
