So the month of September we're almost done with the month of November but the whole month has been national suicide prevention month books have been going on the month of September looks. He'll come the end is there's all kinds of things known nationally. And at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention we have Ben. Promote name people and encouraging people to have a real conversations about mental health suggests. Be open about it should get help if you needed for it to be real about it and also locally there's been a lot of different things happening. I mean this is a time lots of people are starting to talk about suicide and mental illness in this a positive thing. From a you know there's lots of different things happening across the counties in multnomah Washington clock amiss and down Marion County. Wins in a different showings of different films different coalitions getting together to kind of tackled suicide within their own communities and so it's it's time that people. If who don't normally in talk about here about mental health or suicide . Have that conversation and helps to you know raise awareness and help people understand that. You know while suicide is a devastating. Wave to lose someone. It is preventable there's resource is available for people to support each other and there's
have no to feel better and ultimately for people who struggle with suicide to stay alive. And so just talking about it's critical we've heard so many people. Have. Shared stories or interviews are are
mental health or depression are made may be they're even thinking about suicide you don't know that but. To trust your gut and just assume you're the only person it's gonna reach out to that person and and you know just have a real conversation and ask how they're doing. What is the mission of the American foundation for Susan Briggs a really simple mission it's only eleven words it's to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide . And how do you do that through. Four main ways so the first is funding research. I'm with the largest private funder of suicide prevention research and when we were founded 31 years ago. It was a group of families that. We lost people to suicide that wanted to do something and solve that there was no research being funded and the second is support for Los survivors we have several different programs in that area of helping people who moved. And have lost someone to suicide or the struggle with thoughts of suicide themselves on that's that's a key area another one is education. So we teach people about suicide from everything from. You know basic community level introductions to suicide prevention all the way up to clinical entered you know professional training for clinicians in the fourth area. Is an advocating for public policy change that would save lives from suicide so one you know huge UN and they advocacy space. We have national suicide prevention lifeline which is 1802738255. That's a difficult number to to remember sometimes you know I even IA you know let you eat those of you listening can't see this found that a piece of paper to make sure I got the number right but. One of the things that we advocated for a for the past two years at a federal level was set at work with the FC a death. They're governing bodies and answers to establish a study that would look to make the national suicide prevention lifeline to three or four digit number. Rather than this 1800 number the networks argue there and then president trump. You
I'm Listening Portland
it led to triple the normal amount of calls to the national suicide hotline. 1802738255. The message. You're never alone there's always hope. And recovery from mental health problems is possible it's the one thing I wanna focus on in the next half and our. I lost my late husband to suicide twelve years ago. And I've devoted a decade of investigating. And writing about and speaking about. Suicide prevention I wrote a book you can check out called all the things we never knew chasing the chaos of mental illness.
this topic. First of all the number of people who die by suicide in orient is a really disastrous. Number. Nationally 45000 dragon someone who insisted there and so that's two times a day in more than two terms today we lose and they were. Two suicide . And I'm too I want to focus on the number of people who are saved. A lot of folks on the number
two people remembered on their hand cranked and are ready to commit suicide on the wood somewhere. There on the those calls in 95 is a time we don't even have to call. Emergency services

AN INTERVIEW WITH RYAN PRICE WITH AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION ABOUT THE WORK THEY DO AND THEIR FUNDRAISING WALKS COMING IN OCTOBER.
home. As you may be aware of this past week has been suicide prevention week and we'd like to wrap up awareness this week with this interview. On interest of this time I'd like to welcome Ryan price Ryan is the Oregon area director for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in there and how has it gone thanks for having me sir thanks for coming in. So did Tony and to me about the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will be used to yes aware different than some other suicide prevention organizations you know we're not crisis censor anything like that were on the side of funding education and research into suicide prevention not our our missions really simple it's just eleven words. It's to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicides occur in a different than. Some other suicide prevention organizations that are focused on helping people through a time of crisis. Where on the side of what could we do and how to leave how do we do some more research into figuring out what leads people today how do we see how we save lives from suicide through research and education. What can research is being done all kinds of you know we fund research in that it is in every area are related to suicide prevention so sometimes it's. Biology of new things like looking like pop looking from bio markers in people's blood that might help us to learn more about what causes suicide risk. I'm looking into developing new treatments is well listen you know therapies in a from a site call psychological perspective you know one of the kinds of some treatment modalities that therapists can use to help certain patients that we look at everything if it's related to suicide prevention. I'm saving lives in London will will look at him and what we tend to do is we help people oftentimes
stability to save the most lives the fastest. The script. So the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has a pretty bold goal yeah we do can you tell them yeah sure it's called project Tony 25. And this is an effort for us to reduce the suicide rate in the US 20% by Tony Tony five. And you know unlikely that there are somewhat desperation on goals. This is
know we're not going to be able to do alone it sounds suicide prevention doesn't happen in a vacuum you know so we. Have some partners we worked with one of the areas of the critical areas we know can save lives is in firearms and suicide prevention. We actually worked with an organization called the National Shooting Sports Foundation. And helped us create some materials and as a way to focus on just educating the firearms owning community about suicide prevention. And so it's a big partnerships like that that are gonna help us you know reach our this goal of reducing the suicide rate in the US 20% between 25 that's a really interesting approach that's it's 'cause it's. A lot of people look at it like a guns are bad years you kind of turning that around in educating and we've found that. Their conversations pretty tricky with firearms you know there's people that are very passionate on both sides of the issue and so we've taken an approach to say look. We just wanna make firearms if we wanna make suicide prevention education and basic Tenet of firearms ownership we want and and firearms owners want that to mean 50% around 50% of all suicides. And people die using a firearm and so we have to do a better job at. Teaching the firearms owning community what they can do to save lives and and how to spot the risk factors and warning signs of suicide . Can we talk about some of those respective yeah I definitely think you for for asking so. In one of the common misconceptions of people die by SuSE as we see. You know an event happened in a person's life like a job loss are financial struggles we think that might directly lead to their suicide but often there's. Other underlying things on that are going on week we do you know that about 90% of people who die by suicide house. A diagnosis of the mental health condition at the time of their death and and we don't know how. Often those are being diagnosed and treated would have those numbers but it's it's pretty dumb well accepted that about 90% of people who die by suicide have a mental health condition so. Sometimes those are those are going on there really. On the things that someone might notice when someone's at risk for suicide is a most people. They talk about it in one way or another and sometimes it's joking sometimes they might say something and gone just kidding. Most people do express verbally you know that that they're thinking about suicide and so we suggest is said to take it seriously in my noticed. Me hears someone say something like that you also
