I’ve tried to kill myself multiple times and I’m grateful to this day it didn’t work. – HARLO

13 is too young to take your life because you haven’t really lived. You have to push through it and stay positive, it will eventually get better. – LEE ANNE

No matter what somebody out there always loves you. – CONSTANCE

The issue with suicide – they don’t think of the future. When somebody takes their own life at such a young age it hurts the people around them. In the last year I’ve had 5 close friends take their own lives. You can hear what’s going on with them. When somebody comes up to you it’s important to do something about it. If you can see it say it. – DAMIAN

See something. Say something.

Hear Us, What's Up?
While most Americans were at the polls casting their votes on November 8, #SeeSomethingSaySomething teens were capturing personal narratives from Taos middle and high-school students in support of our new teen suicide prevention campaign.

Witnessing teens shedding tears and fighting for the lives of other teens? Powerful is an understatement!

We know last night’s election came with a few surprises. And as a Person of Color who questions whether my interests (and safety) will be on the agenda of the new administration, I understand how upsetting today can be.

But here’s the deal. To fight for representation and opportunities, we have to be living first. And that’s what our work here is all about. We have much to look forward to. We’re still here able to fight another day.

As Harlo (a suicide attempt survivor) reminded us yesterday, life really is precious. We must keep pushing forward.

Please checkout the encouragement and coping tips shared by our partners at Crisis Text Line. They are right – you got this America!

And we got you . . .

Dear Friend,

I know there are probably multiple reasons why you think that suicide is your only escape from the sadness that makes your life seem empty.

I know that hearing “it gets better” seems like a complete lie, but it isn’t. The worries or issues you have today, will have a solution in the near future. You will find something or someone to shine a beam of light in your life. Everyday you wake up you are giving yourself the chance for things to get better.

A wise teacher once told me that great people must suffer. Perhaps you are suffering today, but that makes you the extraordinary person you are.

As you face the day every morning, don’t focus on the negative. Focus on the things that make you smile and remember I will always be here for you.

Trempealeau Hagios Morninglight left us too soon on July 22nd, 2016. Born in 2001 at Tres Orejas, New Mexico, Trempealeau was a fearless, radiant, brilliant being who will be forever loved and remembered by everyone who knew him.

From his journal, a poem by Susan Christensen:

Let me tell you about a game I play

Where I close my eyes and fade away

I float away to a special place

Beyond the stars and moon and space

In this special place you see

There are only two people – just you and me

In this place, all is right

Nothing but love, and we never fight

In this place, there is no sadness

No cells, no courts, none of that madness

No rules to follow, no laws to break

No bars to hold us or separate

No one to tell us we can’t kiss or touch

I don’t just tell you “I love you” – I show you how much

But eventually the game must end

My eyes must open, and reality sets in

But someday soon – I’m not sure when

I will close my eyes and play my game again
