TWLOHA Announces “Tomorrow Needs You” Campaign in Honor of World Suicide Prevention Day

The nonprofit To Write Love on Her Arms just launched its 7th annual campaign to honor World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) and National Suicide Prevention Week (September 9 – September 15). This year’s campaign is calledTomorrow Needs You.”

According to the World Health Organization, 800,000 people die by suicide globally each year. That’s one person every 40 seconds. Additionally, the CDC recently reported that as of 2016, the suicide rate in the United States has risen 25% over the last 20 years.

TWLOHA Founder Jamie Tworkoswki shared: “World Suicide Prevention Day has become the most important day of the year for TWLOHA. This campaign is our biggest and best attempt not only to bring a message of hope and encouragement to folks all over, but also to raise money for people to get the help they need and deserve.

Nancy Lublin, CEO of Crisis Text Line said: “This campaign is all about empowering people to reach out for help and share their experiences. It’s so reflective of who To Write Love on Her Arms is—warm and empathetic, focused on bringing out the best in people.”

People can participate in this year’s campaign by purchasing the organization’s World Suicide Prevention Day pack, joining the conversation on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook using #TomorrowNeedsYou, #WSPD18, and by donating to their fundraising campaign. TWLOHA has set a goal to raise $100,000 to provide counseling scholarships and to help connect thousands of people to local mental health resources.

To Write Love on Her Arms is a nonprofit dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. It exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. Since its start in 2006, TWLOHA has donated over $2.1 million directly into treatment and recovery and answered over 210,000 messages from over 100 countries.
