United Suicide Survivors International
United Suicide Survivors International is an upcoming group operating by and for people with lived experience that aims to:
serve as a home for people who have experienced suicide loss, suicide attempts and suicidal thoughts and feelings, and their friends and families — collectively known as people w/ lived experience with suicide – to leverage their expertise for large scale change.
Their Vision is to have lived expertise become a critical part of all suicide prevention efforts. As a Mission, the group wants to put expertise into action through “leadership, collaboration, and advocacy.”
Thus, they are a key partner that can help amplify your efforts to utilize your lived expertise. We encourage you to take the skills that you are learning at the Lived Experience Academy and join with others to push suicide prevention forward through this important organization.
