Help Save 1000 Mothers From The Pain of Suicide

by Suicide Sucks
Help Save 1000 Mothers From The Pain of Suicide

Summary

This project will enable Suicide Sucks to support Mothers fighting against suicide. A Mother's fear and concern for her children can turn into the heaviest grief and heartache imaginable when she loses a child to suicide. Suicide Sucks seeks to empower Mothers to take bold steps in caring and protecting their children from Suicide by sharing the strength of those who've already experienced the pain.

Challenge

Some Mothers are unsure about how far to go to keep their children safe from Suicide. When you've lost a child, you know the depths of sorrow and regret nobody can understand. Connecting Mothers with the strength and empathy that can only be built from sad experience, with those still helping their kids fight battles against mental illness, depression, anxiety or drugs and alcohol abuse, we can save lives. We can save Mother's from losing their children to suicide.

Solution

We capture the empathetic and powerful strength of Mother's who've lost their children to suicide. We share these stories of strength, love, compassion and empathy with Mothers struggling with similar issues to give them the strength to do more, to go further, to protect their babies.

Long-Term Impact

We can innovate technology to help us identify people in their darkest moments, in the deepest hours of loneliness, pain, and sorrow. We can use technology to help us match the love and compassion of those who care, with those who feel so alone, before it's too late. The long term impact of supporting Suicide Sucks will result in less suicides, until it's no longer an issue in our society. Suicide Sucks is the one Suicide prevention organization with a strategy that can actually save lives.
