suicide prevention

Hi my name is Lizzy Barrett I am a senior at Notre Dame Highschool in Lawrenceville New Jersey. Before the coronavirus shut down our schools and ended our sports seasons my teammates and I wanted to start a fundraiser to honor and remember Coby St.Phard, Sean Vogel, and Nick Pratico who were taken too early from us. With this go fund me we want to give back and help others who feel lost and confused especially during this heart wrenching time to know that there are so many people out there who love you. 

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Suicide Prevention Initiatives (Suicide Prevention Initiatives), and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

More information about Suicide Prevention Initiatives (Suicide Prevention Initiatives): We have studied the social and psychological aspects of what puts people at risk for suicide in the US, European countries and Eastern Asia. We use a short term psychodynamic treatment which we have found more successful than other treatments. Currently we are treating combat veterans with PTSD who are at risk for suicide. We began by treating 100 Veitnam combat veterans with PTSD, a number of factors contributed to the ones that were suicidal but the most significant was guilt over their behavior in combat. The veterans are tested before they begin the treatment and then mid treatment at 6 weeks, at the end of the 12 weeks of treatment and then at 3 and 6 months post treatment.
