13minutes is a partnership public awareness campaign focused on suicide prevention in the Region 6 Behavioral Healthcare area in Nebraska. Every 13 minutes someone dies by suicide. We are working together to change this statistic, decrease the number of suicides experienced in our community, and save lives. Through public education, service announcements, presentations, events, and various communications, we are building awareness around the campaign. We are encouraging people to learn the warning signs to watch for in themselves and loved ones, and change the statistics so we save more lives in our community. The 13minutes campaign is led by The Kim Foundation® and was launched in August of 2016.
If you have an interest in getting involved with local suicide prevention efforts, the Metro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition meets every fourth Tuesday of the month from 8:30am-10:00am at C&A Industries. If you would like to learn more, please contact The Kim Foundation at (402) 891‑6997 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
