Part of a group of companion posters, all focused on preventing suicide, Poster #634 provides a powerful message that could one day help a young man or young woman, or a girl or boy to reconsider a suicide attempt.
Here are Youth Change Workshops' companion suicide prevention posters; just click on the link to see each poster: Poster #633, Poster #634, Poster #635 and Poster #636. Our counseling and trauma experts believe that the group of posters will yield much more results than a single poster grouped separately. Since each poster tackles suicide prevention from a completely different point, the variety maximizes your chances of reaching more students considering or planning suicide or self-harm.
Brightly colored by design, Poster #634 is intended to be hard to miss or overlook. It is intended to grab the attention of your most depressed, sad, desperate, disturbed or impaired adolescent or young adult.
The poster says: Suicide doesn't end the pain. It passes it on to someone else. Ask someone for help.
If you can only put up a few message posters at your site, Poster #634 should be a top contender because it has the potential to actually save a human life. There are few message posters with a more important mission than that. For a tiny price, and a tiny amount of your time, you can actually help a young man or women choose life over death. As you are likely aware, adolescents and young adults have a risk of suicidal acting out, gesturing and serious suicide attempts.
If you work with young people, it is important that you help create a safe environment for them, with resources to assist them in times of extreme turmoil and crisis. Poster #634 will be an important part of that effort. If you work in a specialized setting that focuses on severely emotionally disturbed, traumatized, injured, impaired or substance-affected teens or adults, Poster #634 is an obvious must-have. It is also an obvious must-have for the offices of counselors, therapists, psychologists, doctors, nurses and others who regularly encounter young men and women at the times they may be struggling emotionally.
