Today we need your help to share a message of hope. Around the world, a million people die by suicide every year. Research shows that when people get help, most find the hope they need to stay alive, and get better. The first step is always reaching out.

World Touch Productions created this Public Service Announcement in partnership with Samaritan Counseling Center, urging those thinking about suicide to talk about it, and encouraging friends of those in crisis to reach out and offer help.

So today, on World suicide prevention day, let’s tell our friends that we’ll be there for them. Be part of the solution by sharing and posting “Reach Out” to your websites and social media pages. Anything we can do to promote a message of hope just might be what saves a life.
