No Shame November | Alliance for Suicide Prevention of Larimer County

No Shame November

MustacheJoin the Alliance for Suicide Prevention for the first annual “No-Shame November”.  Based on the idea of “No-Shave November”, this local and hopeful campaign of “No-Shame” aims to promote and spread the concept of dismantling the guilt/shame/taboo associated with mental health and suicide.

The Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s goal is to use November as a month to get the community involved in actively showing support for those in Larimer County who struggle with mental health issues, supports someone with a mental illness, and/or has been affected by suicide.

We believe there’s a role for everyone in suicide prevention.  Please join us in taking a bold step in creating change in our community during the month of November.  Together we can spread awareness and save lives.
