When suicidal calls increased at FirstLink’s National Suicide Helpline, the team in collaboration with Team Tellwell knew that some stories needed to be told.

In collaboration with FirstLink, our team helped several survivors tell their stories to open the conversation about the reality of suicide. Inspired by the Giving Hearts Day theme “Speak Up” about suicide, the survivor video series emerged as a way to make this happen. The goal is to share real-life testimonies of community members who have struggled with the effects of suicide in their life, in the hopes it will inspire others to speak openly about their own experiences.
