Suicide Awareness Voice of Education (SAVE)
This organization was founded by a nationally known suicidologist who lost her own daughter to suicide in 1979. SAVE works to bring awareness to the fact suicide is a public health issue that should not be surrounded by stigma. In 2001, SAVE launched an initiative to use the media and mass marketing to educate the public about suicide prevention, depression, and the link between depression and suicide. SAVE creates customized training programs for professionals including clergy, teachers, and social service professionals, while working to disseminate school-based suicide prevention programs and educational events. Visitors to the website can find support groups, read personal stories, and find information on how to cope with loss and grief.
