Be a ‘Tell Me’ Pledge Ambassador!

Be a ‘Tell Me’ Pledge Ambassador!           



The pledge can help save lives: The pledge encourages community members to talk openly and directly about suicide if they are concerned for someone else, or themselves. Speaking out about their thoughts of suicide, or supporting others, is vital to reducing the number of suicides in Brighton & Hove.





One in twenty of us, or 5%, will consider suicide in any two week period. We want, for each person in Brighton & Hove who thinks about suicide, to know that there is a nominal person somewhere else in the city who has taken the pledge.


Our goal is to reach a minimum of 1% of the city’s (important: Brighton & Hove residents only) adult residents to have taken our Tell Me suicide prevention pledge by World Suicide Prevention Day 2015 (10th September). Currently we have 838 pledges signed Brighton & Hove and are on track to reach our target of approximately 2730.  

Become a Pledge Ambassador: Create a team name (be a creative as you like!) and all you need is twenty signed paper copies or twenty submissions online. We ask for all pledgers from within the same team, to write the same team name on the slip/ MailChimp online form (bit.ly/TMpledge ). This way it is easy to spot teams and count the pledges for each team.

What we give you in return: You will get a virtual pledge badge (#Pledgeling) on our website, and an allocated 10 words to dedicate the pledge to a loved one or friend, or to share a message of hope. The Pledgeling may also be used for your own purposes and acknowledgements, (eg. For use on Facebook, your website or blog) therefore supporting your further efforts in suicide prevention and promote the pledge further.

Example:
















In memory of my dear friend, we miss you.

  3. If there’s nothing wrong with us, we start to think that everything is good out there. While in reality, there is so much suffering and misery out there that one could hardly imagine, and the number of suicides rising every year is an indication of that. All the suicide prevention initiatives have my respect, but they alone wouldn’t work. This problem needs a holistic approach. Starting from the family, to school, to professional life, to relationships, everything needs to improve, in order to prevent suicides. Even pop culture should come with ideas and address this problem through movies, shows, and music. The best directors, script writing wizards, and psychologists should come together for the cause. I believe a movie or a show can be impactful beyond imagination.

  4. The problem of a girl is still an unanswered topic for many people. I lived for a long time by myself, because you can't share different feelings with others, I also had a problem with a kid, but the czech brides site did help me close it. I might find a lovely Czech girl. Emotions and words I really loved her, I couldn't push through the text so I suggest you and feel those emotions and find someone you want here. Everybody should try it, I suggest too!

  6. While recovery focuses don't have total accomplishment in all cases, they have fundamentally improved outcomes in individuals who complete their projects. The Treatment center in dallas climate and clinical skill in drug recuperation basically can't be capable elsewhere.

  7. Great motivational blog and it is written with perfection so I genuinely fell in love with it. I want to ask that can someone pay to write my dissertation for me please because I don't have enough money to do so and its really heartbreaking (just kidding). I actually loved the concept of your website as you are helping the depressed people to talk about their problems with you so they don't get to do suicide.
