Professional Initiatives

The Lifeline network is proud to be a partner in and a leader of multiple initiatives to raise public awareness and further the field of suicide prevention.


#BeThe1To is the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline’s message for National Suicide Prevention Month and beyond, which helps spread the word about actions we can all take to prevent suicide.

Follow Up Matters

Follow Up Matters is a digital resource dedicated to building partnerships related to follow-up and care transitions. Discussing follow-up care at the right time can save lives and hospital resources, and support individuals as they continue their journey towards recovery.

You Matter

You Matter is a safe space for youth to discuss and share stories about mental health and wellness, created and administered by the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline. You Matter blog posts are written by a rotating Blogger Council of individuals between the ages of 13-25 that are passionate about suicide prevention and mental health.

Zero Suicide

The foundational belief of Zero Suicide is that suicide deaths for individuals under care within health and behavioral health systems are preventable. Zero Suicide requires a system-wide approach to improve outcomes and close gaps.

Lifeline for Attempt Survivors

The Lifeline for Attempt Survivors is for those who have attempted suicide and their loved ones. The site houses stories from attempt survivors who have made it through their darkest hour. Some of these stories and resources are for families, friends, and clinicians who want to support people who are feeling suicidal and/or suicide attempt survivors.

Strength After

Created by the Lifeline's subnetwork, the Disaster Distress Helpline, Strength After's mission is to provide a hub to share stories of hope and recovery encompassing all types of natural and human-caused disaster, and serve as a resource for other survivors and responders that may be trying to cope and move forward themselves.
