During National Suicide Prevention Month in September, The Trevor Project will be asking people nationwide to be a part of “Talk to Me.” Talk to Me is Trevor’s campaign for conversation. With 3 simple words – “Talk to Me” – you can let a friend know that you care about them and are willing to listen without judgment. This simple connection isn’t just an act of support – it can help save a life.
There are three things you can do to help prevent suicide in your school or community:
1. Visit TrevorTalkToMe.org and take the Talk to Me pledge.
2. Ask Congress to pass the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act to fund suicide prevention education programs in every state.
3. Register to bring the best practice Trevor Lifeguard Workshop to your school or youth group, and help young people learn the warning signs of suicide and how they can help save a life.
Join the conversation this September and show your support for friends in crisis by visiting TrevorTalkToMe.org throughout National Suicide Prevention Month.
