While suicide prevention is an important topic to address year-round, the truth is, we can all benefit from honest conversations about mental health conditions and suicide, because just one conversation can save a life.
The theme for this year’s Suicide Prevention Activation Kit is Finding Purpose – Taking Care of Ourselves and Others
Having a sense of purpose in life is truly powerful; it enhances resiliency in the face of challenging circumstances and helps us keep going when things are tough.
What is your role?
We invite you to prioritize self-care. Sometimes, it can be difficult to prioritize one’s self over others. Taking the time to care for our whole self—body, mind, and soul—will keep us mentally well.
This includes activities and practices that we can engage in on a regular basis to reduce stress and to maintain and enhance our health and well-being. As many of us have heard, it is essential to “put on your own oxygen mask first.”
Once we have attended to our own needs, we are better equipped to take care of others. Something as simple as a few thoughtful words, or a few minutes of kindness can change the course of a person’s day.
People we encounter may be experiencing problems we know nothing about, and that random act of kindness may brighten their day.

This past winter, the National Academy of Medicine put out a nationwide call for artists of all skills and abilities to submit artwork that expresses how clinicians, their loved ones, patients, and organizations experience and are affected by clinician burnout and well-being. Artists were asked to answer the question: What does clinician well-being look, feel, and sound like to you? Over 350 people responded.
We are thrilled to share 100 of these pieces with you through our permanent digital gallery, which aims to promote greater awareness and understanding of barriers to clinician well-being and to highlight potential solutions to protect and promote the well-being of clinicians of all kinds, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, and others.
