Twin Trio Takes: Why Tomorrow Needs Us

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and last week was National Suicide Prevention Week. Every year, one of our favorite mental health non-profit organizations, To Write Love on Her Arms, creates a campaign for National Suicide Prevention Week/World Suicide Prevention Day. This year’s was “Tomorrow Needs You.” In conjunction with its campaign, TWLOHA creates a prompt for people to fill out to encourage people to stay and let everyone know there is always a reason to stay. So here’s why tomorrow needs us, whether tomorrow is in National Suicide Prevention Month or a random day in March because suicide prevention and mental health should be talked about every day.
