For the second annual You Are Not Alone social media campaign, SPTS encourages you to let teens worldwide know that they are never alone on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. The call to action is simple: link your Twitter and Facebook accounts to our Thunderclap page. By linking your account to the campaign, a post will be automatically sent out on December 2 at 4:00 PM saying “Spread the word: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Post a selfie on 12/2 with the message and help SPTS #saveteens!” Last year, the campaign had a social outreach of 198,088, and this year we hope to exceed that goal with your support.
To further support the cause, post your own selfie on Instagram with the caption: “Suicide is now the 2nd leading cause of death for youth aged 10-24. Don’t be silent; spread the message. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Help @SPTSUSA #saveteens! Reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline @800273TALK. Help is out there.”
Don’t forget to tag @SPTSUSA so we can share your wonderful support throughout the holiday season!
