Shred Suicide Bracelet
Shred Suicide Bracelet
Designed by Dorian Madreperla & Denise Cox, this striking bracelet was inspired by many teens who struggle with anxiety, depression and suicide, many who have decided to continue their story, and honoring those we didn't connect with in time. Our goal is to educate and stop this awful epidemic. Put a stop to the ignorance and learn techniques to deal with the many challenges of social media, teach kids to help one another in a time of need and don't be afraid to speak up when someone needs help. Education and awareness are the keys to help not only the teens, but the adults that come in contact with those teens who may reach out in a time of need, what to do next? Pause. Reflect. Affirm. Continue.
The Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide, Inc. (SPTS) is a non-profit community organization dedicated to increasing awareness and reducing the stigma of suicide through specialized training programs and outreach resources that empower teens, parents and educational leaders with the guidance and skills needed to help those at risk of suicide build a life of resiliency. SPTS was founded in 2005 by two Monmouth County fathers who each experienced the devastating loss of a teenage child by suicide. The mission of SPTS is to reduce the number of youth suicides and attempted suicides by encouraging public awareness through the development and promotion of educational training programs. Annually, it is estimated that SPTS directly serves 236,000 individuals.
