Your story doesn’t have to end; it gets better…


A semicolon is used when an author could've chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life. 


Back in 2013, on April 16th, thousands of people joined The Semicolon Project to raise public awareness against depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.



They have a vision.


The vision is that, for the first time, people feel what real love is. 

The vision is that people see the value in their story. 

The vision is that suicide is no longer an option to be considered.

The vision is that everyone loves one another regardless of the label they wear. 

The vision is to reduce suicide rates in America and around the world.

The vision is that drugs and alcohol are no longer an escape to be used.

The vision is that blades are put down.

The vision is that for the first time steps are taken towards recovery.

The vision is that society no longer pushes mental illness, suicide, addiction and self-injury under the rug. 

The vision is that for the first time conversations are being started. 

The vision is that everyone comes together as a community and stands together in support of one another. 

The vision is hope, and hope is alive.

The vision is LOVE.

You are not alone. Your story isn’t over yet.
