"I have lost classmates and multiple other community members to suicide, as well as battled with my own bouts of depression, suicidal actions, and attempts. I believe that if everyone worked together and supported each other to the best of their abilities, suicide rates would rapidly decline. Suicide is stoppable. We all have the power to be that wall of help between someone and their darkness." - High School Student, GA
"We need to be the voice and inspiration to those who contemplate suicide- to let them know that people love them, suicide is not the only way, and that things will improve. I want to encourage people to talk about suicide and all of the pain that the survivors are left with, in hopes to get a conversation going and end the stigma." - Undergrad, KY
"We can lead by example, show others that there is hope. We can be the voice by first listening and being the shoulder to cry on and then sharing resources and telling someone that you or a loved one needs help. There is no shame in asking for help." - Alumni, MO
