One of the organizations that offers this help and that promotes open and free discussion of mental health is the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The AFSP offers a help line—1-800-273-TALK (8255)—for people with suicidal thoughts. They also participate in state and federal policy advocacy, support research, and even offer tips to journalists on how to write about suicide. And if you supported me during the Out of Darkness walk last October, which raised money for the AFSP, then thank you again!
The finished book will be printed in black and white and professionally bound. And is there much cooler than putting your own published work on your bookshelf or giving it to loved ones as a gift? If there is, it’s probably getting your work out there to be enjoyed by people you don’t even know! So start thinking… do you have a story to share?
