To Write Love on Her Arms Announce 12th Annual Suicide Prevention Campaign

Mental health non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) has announced its 12th annual suicide prevention campaign. Running through the end of September (Suicide Prevention Month), this year’s campaign revolves around the statement “The World Is Not Better Without You.”
On the campaign’s website, the organization wrote: “Suicide impacts every community on the planet. Globally, we lose 700,000 people to suicide each year, and it claimed more than 50,000 lives in the US in 2022. The ripple effect of grief and confusion from these losses can be felt around the world. There is work to be done. September is recognized as Suicide Prevention Month and serves as the foundation for one of our biggest campaigns of the year. What we believe about suicide determines what we do about suicide prevention. If we believe nothing can be done, nothing will be done. This is the first of many lies we tear down this month. Suicide prevention isn’t just crisis intervention. It isn’t reduced to knowing what to say or do in the last possible moment. It is prevention for a reason. It is every day steps and conversations that can help us stop the thoughts and isolation before it goes too far. Join us as we fight the myths and misinformation that have marked the conversation about suicide for too long. We all have a role we can play in carrying this truth: The world is not better without you.”
People can participate by purchasing the Suicide Prevention Pack, joining the conversation online by tagging @TWLOHA and using #NotBetterWithoutYou, and by donating to the campaign. All donations will go towards TWLOHA’s goal of raising $300,000, which will make it possible for the organization to sponsor 4,000+ hours of counseling and group therapy sessions, as well as help to expand the resources found in their FIND HELP Tool.
