“Gen Z will be suicide free”
That’s Stay Here’s opening line on their website. As a “mental health organization and movement dedicated to ending suicide and healing the broken hearted,” Stay Here aims to lower the tragic suicide rate of one person every 40 seconds through “equipping millions of individuals in hope-filled suicide prevention training and awareness.”
Founder Jacob Coyne joins The Denison Forum Podcast to discuss how you can help prevent suicides by watching the Giants–Cowboys NFL game on September 10, World Suicide Prevention Day. He also shares how to talk with others considering suicide, the training resources that Stay Here offers, as well as a prayer on behalf of those who are struggling with this issue.
NOTE: If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please get help immediately. Call or text the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988 or visit 988lifeline.org.
