At CONVICTS, we believe in the power of stories to change the world for the better. And so, this Depression Screening and Awareness Month we took the time to listen to those who’ve been affected by suicide--both attempt survivors and victims' loved ones.
In our film Take Away the Shame we hear their stories and hope that by amplifying their voices we can help those struggling with their mental health.
Because listening matters.
Because talking about it matters.
Because checking in on each other matters.
Please join us in taking away the shame of having open and honest conversations around mental health.
If you or a loved one is in crisis, know there is help out there. Call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 800-273-8255 or text "HOME" to 741741 for Crisis Text Line.
Trevor Project Confidential Suicide Hotline for LGBTQA+ youth: 866-488-7386.
