Back in May, I had my Mental health Heroes cartoon-a-thon, and I filled my days with drawing some very amazing people/heroes! I had to put a few things on the “back-burners” for a while. This was one of the things I wanted to share, and it is something you can get in on, too. It’s the suicide prevention “Reasons to Call” photo campaign:

Whether you are thinking about suicide, are worried about a friend, or need emotional support, there are a million of reasons to call the Lifeline. We asked people to make a sign telling others why they should call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or why they have called themselves.

Message on Facebook. Write a note about why someone should call the hotline. I got to be a part of National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ‘1-800-273-TALK (8255), and they posted my photo on their page.

I was tickled pink when one of  my Facebook Friends and 2011 Mental Health Hero also jumped in on this important “Reasons to Call” campaign.  Here is what she had to say about my photo and the sign she made.  AWESOME Job Dr. DEB.

“Living with Depression” By Deborah Serani “This is great Chato. You inspired me to do one.”

I Recommend the Book: Living with Depression: Why Biology and Biography Matter along the Path to Hope and Healing

If I’ve inspired you too, let me know and I’ll post it on my Facebook page.  :)
