CSBMG reaches out to the local community and beyond through an extensive and informative interview about the Voices of Hope Suicide Prevention Coalition.
The Voices of Hope Suicide Prevention Coalition of Dublin-Laurens was organized in 2010. Their mission is to “provide education resources, and support for individuals at risk of suicide and the survivors of suicide and their families”. They are committed to help reduce the incidence and impacts of suicide by increasing awareness of suicide as a public health issue, reducing the stigma associated with suicide, and improving access to help.

Seize the Awkward campaign, in partnership with the Ad Council and The Jed Foundation (JED), has already reached millions of young people across the country, inspiring them to reach out to their friends about mental health and giving them the guidance to do so.
Now, in further support of the campaign, music artists Billie Eilish and Ava Max have created their very own videos, in which they speak authentically about their own experiences with mental health. In these two videos, they encourage their many fans to reach out, #SeizetheAwkward, and have a #RealConvo.
