Our Nationwide Initiative to Reduce the Annual Rate of Suicide in the U.S. 20% by 2025

One way we lead the fight to stop suicide is by advocating at the federal, state, and local level to pass suicide prevention policies that can save lives. That is why we empower volunteer Field Advocates across the country to urge public officials to prioritize suicide prevention and mental health.

Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers and staff, this past year we saw the successful passage of five federal bills and 27 state bills in support of our top public policy priorities.
