TRANSITIONAL YOUTH (AGES 16-28)

Data on teen & college age suicides

 

Vibrant’s Safe Space – seeks to provide evidence-based self-help tools, education, and resources to people looking for support alongside crisis services such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, as well as people in emotional distress who may not be inclined to use a crisis service. The development of the Safe Space was done in collaboration with the three national advisory committees of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which is funded by SAMHSA and administered by Vibrant.

 

 

 

Just like the lotus, we too have the ability to rise from the mud,
bloom out of the darkness, and radiate into the world.
