UMTR2ME, which simply stands for the phrase, You Matter To Me, is a life changing life saving not for profit 501c3 initiative that provides hope, support and encouragement to individuals struggling with thoughts of suicide or who have attempted suicide in addition to supporting their family and friends.
One of the ways, which is also the original reason UMTR2ME was launched, is through our silicone bracelet campaign. These are not meant to be a fun or cool bracelets worn by just anyone. Rather these bracelets are meant to serve as a beacon of hope and encouragement while also serving as a resource.
On these white and black bracelets, is the simple yet powerful message, You Matter To Me. It is our hope that when an individual finds themselves in a dark or hopeless place they will be able to look at the bracelet on their wrist and remember no matter what, they matter to someone and they can reach out for help.
On the inside of the bracelet is the UMTR2ME website where individuals are able to find
many local, national and international resources available to assist with whatever struggles they may be going through. Struggles such as addiction, depression,
self-injury, mental illness as well as many others. The website also has a continually expanding list of local counselors and therapist that UMTR2ME has established referral relationships with.
Another way UMTR2ME provides hope, support and encouragement is through our various social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. And it’s the variety of these platforms that has proven to be a invaluable resource where individuals can find real community from peers who offer their own words of hope, support, and encouragement.
The UMTR2ME website has been visited by individuals in all 51 States as well as over 75+ different countries and languages and that is not meant to make UMTR2ME sound popular are trendy but rather to validate the fact that suicide is a pandemic that doesn’t discriminate based on age, gender, ethnicity or country of origin.
You may be wondering what causes someone to consider suicide? Believe it or not the answer to that question is quite simple but first you must understand that suicide
comes about as a result of an individual reaching a point in life where they feel they no longer have the coping resources necessary to handle whatever struggles they may be going through.
So what causes someone to consider suicide? Anything that causes a person hardship, stress, or trouble in their life to the point they feel they cannot take it anymore.
In addition to the usual suspects such as depression, mental illness, addiction, self-injury, bullying, and sexual identification; there are also many unusual suspects that contribute to suicide like medical hardships for those diagnosed with a disease or terminal illness as well as elderly, financial hardships, loss of a job or career, not being accepted into a specific college or learning difficulties in school, and relationship troubles.
The list is long and never exclusive.
