We placed the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255) in our book and on this website along with numerous other resources. As you read news stories and see coverage on television, I encourage you to reach out to that platform and ask them to site these resources (resource links) as it is an opportunity to save lives. We are hoping and reaching out to news media to make sure this number and other resources are included when stories are aired or written on the subject of suicide or suicide attempts. We encourage and hope that more news media will start this practice and offer a "lifeline" to their audience members who might be struggling. Your future holds many opportunities, please stay with us to see how great it can be.
