Trigger Warning

The content displayed on this web page may be sensitive to some viewers. Viewing is not advised if you may become easily triggered.

If you think you might be triggered and need support, click here before you start the first video and copy down the phone numbers, chat lines or text message numbers that you would feel most comfortable contacting. Remember, suicide is preventable. It is not chosen. It is momentary. It happens when pain exceeds resources for coping with pain. You're not a bad, o crazy, or weak, or flawed person if you feel suicidal. It doesn't mean that you really want to die. Know that contacting someone isn't a sign of weakness. It shows real strength to ask for help.

 Share Your Story of Hope

Stories unite those touched by suicide – and offer hope to others. Do your part to create change: share your family’s story of struggle and healing.

Secrets No More is a process that one or more people can do together and, if a group, can be an ongoing time to gather in a private place to answer the question "R U OK?" and take an opportunity to talk about what's going on in your life, difficulties, triumphs, ask for help, offer to help someone else.

A place to start is to print out this Survey Form.

When you can commit a minimum of a half an hour up to as much as three and a half hours, at your earliest convenience, that could possibly save a friends life, follow this process.

Find a place where you won't be interrupted by others, the phone, text messages, etc. Preferably a quiet place.

Take a few moments to breathe and relax before you start.

Get a stop watch.

Have a box of facial tissues handy.

The Process

Have you every seriously considered suicide? Have you ever actually attempted suicide? Have you lost someone important to you to suicide? Do you know someone who has attempted suicide? Can you think of anyone you know who might be considering suicide? Note on the Survey Form the feelings as they come up.

Each video is approximately five minutes long.

Start the stop watch when you start the first video.

Automatically click on the next video and continue the process.

Look at each person's face and read as much of the information about the person as you can.

Note on the survey form the time on the stop watch:

When you first teared

When you first whimpered

When you first cried out loud

When you first wailed

When you were moved to find out what you can do to help achieve Zero Suicide

Record the time when you stopped watching. Close your eyes and take some time to feel what's going on for you. Journal any particular feeling, memories, thoughts, as they come up.

If you didn't complete the series of videos and choose to continue after a break, start the stop watch and continue recording your process.
