An Intimate Video Conversation About Suicide Prevention
Suicide has become an Epidemic: The US suicide rate has jumped some 30% from 2000 to 2016, according to the Centers For Disease Control. The reasons are complex: Family fragmentation, social media overexposure, political polarization, opioids, and other life stressors all play a part. Stay Alive was developed in recognition of the challenges of traditional institutions in addressing all those in need of suicide prevention and care.
Stay Alive is a 75-minute video/podcast documentary serving at-risk populations. The program’s two sections – Understanding and Helping, deliver messages of Education, Compassion and Caring for those who are in deep despair, along with Guidance for their families and friends who love them. Stay Alive is recommended for individuals, families, schools, communities, social services, and churches – anywhere there is a need. Stay Alive is available on YouTube and other distribution channels Free of Charge.
Stay Alive’s message centers around the process of moving from Despair, as in being seemingly unpaired with connection and a reason to live – feeling Hopeless, Helpless, Powerless, Useless, Worthless, Purposeless, Meaningless, Pointless – to Repairing. The Presenters’ profound personal disclosures and proven approaches make this program uniquely valuable and unlike any other you may have ever seen.
