Friends helping friends, in loving memory of Dylan Salge

The I'm Glad You Stayed Project strives to educate the public, especially teenagers, on real-time suicide prevention actions. We provide free resources such as wristbands, stickers and bag tags with the 988 suicide and crisis lifeline number on them, pamphlets on how to help your friend that is struggling with suicidal ideation, and offer free QPR training, in person or on Zoom, with the goal of saving the lives of those struggling with mental health and suicidal ideation. All of our resources are free, as well as our QPR training. We set up resource tables at school lunchrooms, events, and conferences. We are not professionals, just friends helping friends, trying to make a difference!

We are a federally recognized 501(c) non-profit and rely on volunteers to run our project.
