The Trevor Project, organization which fights for LGBTQ youth, launches a new campaign 'TALK TO ME'. People become listeners for people who need support.
This campaingn is organized during all September and allows people needing to speak to somebody to call a 24 hours hotline.
"It is vital that we recognize our own individual ability to help prevent the tragedy of suicide.
"At the Trevor Project, we are especially concerned about the risks facing young people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning, but ‘Talk to Me’ is for all of us: parents, friends, family members, coworkers, teachers, and students. We all have the ability to let another person know that they are not alone and that we genuinely care about their health and well-being, " said Abbe Land, Trevor Project executive director and CEO.
You can also buy Tee-shirts, write a message on sticky notes or you can contact your local lawmaker to advocate for funding for inclusive suicide prevention training for school staff.
