Suicide Prevention Month

Our Minds Matter (OMM) works toward the day when no teen dies by suicide. OMM empowers teens to change the culture around mental health in their schools and communities. 

Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people ages 10–14 and the third leading cause of death for young people ages 15–24 in the United States. 

Do you want to join OMM’s mission to ensure that no teen dies by suicide? Here are some ways to get involved this Suicide Prevention Month:

for anyone

for teens

for clubs

  • Host a “You Matter” campaign by mobilizing your community to prioritize mental health at your school.  Sign into the club portal to get the guide.

However you choose to get involved in Suicide Prevention Month this September, remember that with any action you take — big or small — you are helping save lives!

If you or someone you know is struggling with their mental health, text MIND to 741741 to be connected to a Crisis Text Line Counselor or, call 988. Check out this page for more mental health resources from the many organizations and services that are here to help!
