This toolkit is split into a three-pronged approach:
- More Tomorrows highlights suicide prevention information including warning signs, risk factors, and what to do if you recognize these signs in yourself or a loved one. More Tomorrows works to empower people with information and hope, ensuring each of our community members will see “more tomorrows.”
- Safe Home for the Holidays provides useful information on how to keep our homes safe around the holidays, and always, by removing or locking up items that could cause harm to those we love.
- Digital Safety includes information on how to keep your youth safe using technology, while learning the harms that social media and technology can bring if the proper steps aren’t taken.
This toolkit includes sample social media posts, posters, crisis resource cards, and a wealth of information to share. Our hope is that you will share these with your internal staff and beyond, to your students, clients, parents, supporters, and anyone who may visit your website. Please include the resources on your website, in your newsletters, social media, and any form of communication that may be relevant.
Our goal is to get these resources into your hands, and we ask for your help to blanket the community with this information to help us further our reach. Suicide is preventable. Lives can be saved. But it will take each and every one of us working together, acknowledging the role we can play in suicide prevention, and taking care of each other. Omaha is known for our philanthropic and collaborative spirit. We are asking you to let that shine through your work now and join us by sharing this information.
On behalf of all of our community partners who shared in this work, we thank you. We know that your jobs are not easy and that much is asked of you daily. We do not take that lightly, but truly believe together, we can save lives from suicide and help end this crisis in our community.
