      Transforming Suicide Prevention
 When suicide rates continue to rise and hurt it is time for disruptive change.

Red Lever Humannovations, directed by internationally known suicide thought leaders, catalyzes change through  program innovation, training, technical assistance, organizational and policy development. As fueled by the power of 'lived expertise' these leading edge projects can shift the balance to save lives around the world.
Growth through personal crisis and intensity is a natural but often distressing process. People who have been there are uniquely capable, though, of supporting others in their journey and challenges.

Based in best practices for mental health recovery, suicide prevention and crisis intervention, Growing Through! is a transformative peer-based skills training for providing support to others at life's toughest moments,  promoting hope and preventing suicide death.
Suicide death is a difficult and growing problem around the world.

Activating Hope, a project of Red Lever Innovations with the US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, brings a powerful resource to the challenge of reducing suicide.

Whether you are an individual with lived experience of suicide looking for ways to use your experience, or if you are a leader or organization seeking to integrate that experience to reduce suicide, we are here to help you get to the next step and make a difference by #ActivatingHope in your community.
Heart of the Artist  (2019)
Visual artists, musicians, writers and performers bring their inner worlds and deepest personal experiences into their work of exploring and creating meaning. Far too many, though, also experience stress, trauma and distress, sometimes resulting in long-term mental ill-health, destructive patterns of addiction and death by suicide.

Heart of the Artist– driven by working artists and mental health experts– will foster communities of peer support, development of personal wellness strategies and creative collaborations that support healing in the context of art-making, and the crucial role that artists play in making healthier societies.

"To save lives we must stop preventing suicide..."
