Want to help reduce the stigma attached to mental illness, depression, and suicide? There are many ways you can help us do just that, and it does not matter to us if you already contribute elsewhere. One of our key focuses is getting everyone WORK TOGETHER to end the stigma and actually begin to reduce suicide rates.

If you work with people who suffer from mental illness, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, or any other state that could lead to crisis you belong on the Working Together network…

Join us now! It costs nothing and is completely advertisement free.

Doctors save lives. Paramedics save lives. You don’t have to be a professional to save lives. All you have to do is be there when someone needs you the most.

If you are an artist and think you have content that you could contribute to us for our Rise Against STIGMA & SUICIDE project, please get in touch with us now. We are accepting art of all forms from drawings to music to photography to poetry. Anything moving can be the thing that makes someone realize that tomorrow just may be a better day. All you need to do is ensure that you own the rights to your material, or go to your label and find out if they will agree to let you donate one peice to charity that we can use as an incentive to get people to donate. We are not looking to “sell” your music, we are trying to reach as many people as possible.
