According to the World Health Organization, almost 800,000 people die every year from suicide. At Hope is Oxygen, we believe that number can be reduced. Dramatically reduced.
Suicidal people are desperately attempting to escape suffering that feels unbearable. They have lost hope.
Suicidal people are so blinded by their desire for their emotional pain to stop that they see no way to relief other than through death. They have lost hope.
Most suicidal people are deeply conflicted about ending their lives. They wish for an alternative, but they just don’t see one. They have lost hope.
At Hope is Oxygen, we believe that one of the most important ways we can help prevent suicide is by restoring hope.
