IF YOU ARE FEELING SUICIDAL OR WANT TO TALK CALL THE NATIONAL LIFELINE
Mission, Vision and Goals
“Get Your Wellness On” is a grass-roots movement to promote health and save lives. Encouraging dialogue and education to reduce incidence of mental illnesses that can lead to suicide, “Get Your Wellness On” promotes Eastern and Western approaches to mind and body health. The movement advances a general understanding of wellness that will empower individuals to take charge of their overall health.
Wellness through education, dialogue, openness, understanding and action is promoted through:
Get Your Wellness On Suicide Awareness & Prevention Fairs as far and wide as possible
Promoting 24-hour hotlines (in some countries they are very sketchy)
Collaboration with suicide prevention organizations such as the AFSP, media, and legislators
The Share Your Story initiative
In addition, the founder, activist and writer Esmeralda Williamson-Noble, whose twenty-year-old son Andrew died of suicide on November 3, 2009—along with volunteers of Get Your Wellness On—are available for interviews, workshops and panel and discussion forums.
