Support us and help save lives
When it comes to suicide, means do matter. People may not realize that two-thirds of all gun deaths are suicides.1 Having access to a firearm greatly increases the chances that a suicide attempt will end in death. Furthermore, 85 percent of people who attempt suicide with a firearm will complete the act.2 Walk the Talk America provides resources that help prevent these suicides. We could really use your support in order to make our mental health resources just as accessible as the firearms in individuals’ homes and let them know they can seek help without consequence.
Our goal is to create a society where the mental health and firearms communities have come together to develop innovative programs based on fact and understanding, rather than fear and mistrust. If we do this, then both mental illness and gun ownership will be destigmatized and all people will get help. We cannot accomplish this alone and need your support.
