News Type:  Weekly Spark Announcement

In August 2015 the CDC and SAMHSA launched 1 Photo, 6 Words. #VetoViolence—an initiative that encouraged using social media to promote activities that prevent suicide. In late February 2016, a brief video was released featuring photos that suicide prevention professionals, public health practitioners, and others posted to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The video shows ways that people are giving hope and fostering resilience in families, relationships, workplaces, and communities across the country.
