We know that every day, people are helping themselves and others get through their darkest moments.

The National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention and the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline (formerly known as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline) know it is possible to reduce deaths from suicide like we have reduced heart disease fatalities and other leading causes of death. For every person who dies by suicide annually, there are another 316 people who have thought seriously about suicide who don’t kill themselves, and nearly 60 who have survived a suicide attempt. The overwhelming majority of these individuals will go on to live out their lives. These untold stories of hope and recovery are the stories of suicide prevention, stories that inform the Lifeline and the Action Alliance’s efforts to prevent more suicides every day.

#BeThe1To is the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline’s message for National Suicide Prevention Month and beyond, spreading the word about actions we can all take to prevent suicide. The Lifeline network and its partners are working to change the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention, to actions that can promote healing, help and give hope. Together, we can prevent suicide by learning to help ourselves, help others, seek consultation from trained providers (hotlines and clinicians) and to seek hospital care when necessary. Learn about each step and why the steps are effective here.
