Invitation: Participate In Suicide Prevention Blog Day!

Suicide Awareness and Prevention Blog Day

Hey Friends!
Though there has been a lot going on in my life lately I thought I would come out of hiding to share an amazing campaign coming up this September. The USC School of Social Work is hosting a Blog Day for Suicide Prevention and Awareness and everyone should participate! The campaign starts September 1 and continues through out the month. There are several awesome benefits to participating. If you share a link to your blog article in the campaign comments section, USC will aggregate your post and promote it for you. This is a great way to raise awareness on an important issue while guiding more traffic to your site. Bonus points: Outstanding posts will be featured at the end of the month!

Here is how to participate in the Suicide Prevention Blog Day Campaign:

  • Publish a blog post that incorporates a suicide prevention theme. Mention why raising awareness about this issue matters.
  • Include a link back to our blog campaign description so that your readers can learn how they can raise awareness, too.
  • Place the “Blogging for Suicide Prevention” badge on your post or site using the html code provided on their site (see my badge below).
  • Share your blog post for suicide prevention on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #suicideprevention and #SABD13.
  • Check out our Suicide Awareness Roundup to read, engage and follow bloggers participating in the campaign.
  • Important Note: Please provide a trigger warning if you include any traumatic experiences or images in your blog post.
  • Blogging For Suicide Prevention Badge
    USC’s MSW Programs Blog Day.

    Use these ideas to get your community involved:

  • Share the campaign on your website or blog, newsletter, and social media.
  • Post the campaign badge on your site to show your support.
  • Motivate your community to learn more about suicide prevention.
  • Encourage your family, friends, and colleagues to participate.
  • Print the badge and take a picture with it (or a sign) and share on social #SABD13
  • Hope to see you blogging for suicide awareness this September!
