Video: Suicide Prevention Public Service Announcement
Author: TAPS Media
As a suicide loss survivor, what does suicide prevention mean to you? We asked TAPS survivors of suicide loss this question and their answers were full of hope.
“Suicide prevention efforts can be healing and even empowering as we turn our grief into action based on our own experiences,” surviving spouse Dr. Carla Stumpf-Patton, TAPS Senior Director of Postvention & Prevention Programs, told us. “This can help others and send the message that they’re not alone, that help exists, and with it comes the hope that saves lives.”
TAPS Suicide Postvention and Prevention Program has supported thousands of survivors of military suicide loss by offering them hope, healing, and renewed opportunities for personal growth.
