Suicide Prevention & Awareness

Posted in #PaulthePoke with tags , on October 11, 2021 by paulthepoke

Proverbs 11:17 A man who is kind benefits himself, but a cruel man hurts himself.

Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

My son will be turning 18 later this week. He has chosen to bring attention to the issue of suicide prevention. Please take time to consider.

For my birthday this year, I’m asking for donations to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I’ve included information about the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention below.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.

To fully achieve its mission, AFSP engages in the following Five Core Strategies:

  1. Fund scientific research
  2. Offer educational programs for professionals
  3. Educate the public about mental disorders and suicide prevention
  4. Promote policies and legislation that impact suicide and prevention
  5. Provide programs and resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk, and involve them in the work of the Foundation

Facebook pays all the processing fees for you, so 100% of your donation goes directly to the nonprofit.

Hebrews 13:16 Do not neglect to do good & share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Ecclesiastes 7:17 Be not overly wicked, neither be a fool. Why should you die before your time?
