Suicide Talks is a website dedicated to helping people at risk for suicide. The idea behind the name is that suicide does talk.
On any given day there are about 130 people that kill themselves in the U.S. This is a very sad thing to think about. This is nothing in compared to the number of suicides around the world.
Every 40 seconds there is a person taking their own life. That's 91 people per hour and 2,191 people per day. At 800,000 people per year, that is close to the population of San Francisco!
Suicide is one of the leading causes of death all around the world and we want to do something about it! We always hear about cancer, gun violence, and heart disease, but not enough about suicide.
Of course there are plenty of platforms that are dedicated to helping people at risk for suicide, but from what we have seen, there are too many people doing the act and not enough organizations doing something about it. We saw the gap and wanted to help.
I personally am a suicide survivor. I also have close friends that have killed themselves. I know the pain of both sides. This fuels me to help others before it's too late!
Our goal is to give people true hope that lasts, which is Jesus. We have many testimonies of lives being changed by the power of the gospel. People without hope, suicidal, and many others. We know the power of the gospel, so we want to share it with everyone that we can. Especially those that are struggling with suicide.
Want to Help?
You can help us by sharing our suicide blog articles with people that might benefit from them. You never know what kind of impact you could make just by sharing an article. Our articles aren't just about suicide. They are about learning how to overcome toxic thoughts and beliefs, and to give hope and inspiration to anyone that may need it.
You can also help by donating. Your donations will go towards translating pages, ads, SEO, and website development.
There are almost 8 billion people on the planet and only around 1 billion of them speak or read English. We want to be able to help all people, not just those that speak English. Yours donations can help our pages and content be seen by people all around the world by translating our pages into their local languages.
We are a relatively new website, which means that we aren't able to be seen by too many people yet. Therefore the only way to help people is by using paid ads. We only have a small budget and are unable to broadcast to a large audience, but with your help we can reach and help many more people.
Search Engine Optimization & Website Development
As I stated above, our website is fairly new. Therefore we will have to work hard to get our pages optimized for Google to be able to take notice of us. Your donations can also be used to hire SEO & Web Developers that can optimize our site and inspire other people to link back to us. This will help us get on the first page of Google so more people can see our content.
If you have a preference where your donation goes, you can respond to the thank you email after your payment goes through. We will try to respond within 24 business hours.
Thank you for making a difference!
