There are many aspects to raising awareness for the topic of suicide. LiFE OF HOPE believes SUICIDE IS PREVENTABLE. One community. One family. One LiFE at a time. However, we also believe changed perspectives and healthy behaviors begin with raising a healthy awareness, void of judgment or shame, through a message of HOPE and healing.
COMMUNITY WIDE AWARENESS
Our awareness building initiatives are focused on promoting the LiFE OF HOPE mission. We are separating fact from myth, and encouraging healthy discussions surrounding suicide. This includes the risk factors, behaviors, protective factors, and intervention options for suicide.
All outbound promotion of awareness messaging may include but is not limited to our LiFE OF HOPE website, email, social media, broadcast, print publications, outdoor, community venues, B2B, e-newsletter, press releases, special events, and more.
LiFE OF HOPE recognizes the value of youth voices, understanding that many teens are affected by suicide. It is during these years that great ideas can inspire positive change. For this reason, we welcome area schools and youth to engage in our leadership development program. Here, real world skills are developed through the implementation of member created initiatives.
Youth Impact Club (YIC) members embrace and promote improved mental health and suicide prevention. Each school group works on a local scale to make suicide a talkable topic within their community. They are encouraged to contribute a measurable impact through LiFE-saving change through the TRUST and emPOWERment granted to the youth of our community.
