Together We Fight to Prevent Suicide

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and we are inviting you to join us in the fight to prevent suicide. 

We recognize that suicide is too prevalent and only increasing every year. For the month of September, in collaboration with National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we're seeking your support to raise $10,000 to help 100 people through our "Therapy for All" program. 

We're Inviting You to Help

We're inviting you to help us reach $10,000 through your donations and also by championing our cause through your peer-to-peer network. To help us reach our goals there is the option to create your own fundraising page for our campaign. We so appreciate your help to get the word out, and even have graphics for you to share. 

We'll also be sharing resources, tools, and answering your questions about suicide prevention and awareness all month long with special guests and experts on Instagram. We'll update weekly, so be sure to keep checking back in!

The campaign runs through September, and as a thank you for your support, we are awarding two Grand Prize winners. The top two individual raisers will be awarded an exclusive experience with Karena!

More About Our September Fundraiser:

We know that mental health has become the biggest public health crisis that our world faces. In 2022 there were 49,449 people lost to suicide in the USA, an increase of approximately 2.6%. And there were a further 1.7M attempts. John Hopkins Bloomburg School of Public Health researchers found that suicide attempts and deaths plummet even years after treatment through therapy has ended, with 25% fewer repeat attempts and deaths among people who underwent short-term counseling after an attempt.

With our incredible network of mental health professionals we offer "Therapy for All" making 1:1 talk therapy accessible to people in need. Many have felt that therapy was a good investment, but even those whose care was covered in part by insurance reported concerns about continuing to afford it. Therapy for All is a therapy fund that alleviates the financial stress of getting treatment for people who are in need of these resources. 

We believe that anyone suffering with mental health issues deserves support Too many people live in areas where mental health support is unavailable or too costly. Moreover, people do not seek support because of the stigma, even though over 40% of Americans struggle with mental health. Two of the most common mental health disorders – anxiety and depression – cost the US economy $1 trillion every year. Mental health issues can affect people at any stage of life causing distress, dysfunction, and even death.

When you contribute as part of our campaign, you’re supporting a transformative solution to the mental health crisis in the United States.

We're inviting you to help us reach $10,000 to offer 100 therapy scholarships in honor of National Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month.

We recognize that suicide is too prevalent and only increasing every year. You're invited to make a difference with us, and to join our quest to help as many people as possible. Together we can make the world a more joyful and loving place.
