Mental Health America of Texas announces the availability of five short videos featuring youth and young adults from central Texas sharing their stories of hope and help. These videos feature the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number and follow their guidelines for suicide prevention.
These true stories are from high school or college age youth who have either reached out for help themselves when they were severely depressed and having suicidal thoughts, or from teens who have reached out to help a friend who was thinking of suicide.
The videos are sponsored by the Texas Suicide Prevention Council and Mental Health America of Texas in partnership with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Austin Travis County Suicide Prevention Coalition.
