Connect to Hope with Give an Hour

Preventing Suicide Together

In the US, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death, and worldwide one person every 40 seconds takes their life. We know that a sense of connection, large or small, is one of our fundamental human needs and it affects our mental health, physical health, and longevity. We all have the ability to prevent suicide through outreach and connection to our family, friends, and community. Each September, organizations around the globe come together to spread awareness that help is available to those emotionally suffering. We are all in this together and through collaboration, those suffering from mental health challenges can #changedirection and find hope.
