It is with that intent that Rosehill has initiated the 'Save A Life Tonight' suicide prevention campaign. First and foremost, it is their desire to use the song and video as a means to reach out to those in crisis and guide them to organizations and people that can help them. It is also important to them to bring this issue out of the closet and remove the stigma associated with depression and suicide. Please visit www.savealifetonight.com for information on how to help Rosehill raise awareness about suicide prevention.
The most recent statistics, generated by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state that in 2010 (the most recent year for which data are available), "38,364 suicides were reported, making suicide the 10th leading cause of death for Americans. In that year, someone in the country died by suicide every 13.7 minutes."
As Blake Myers put it, "We are absolutely committed to this effort. We know what it feels like to have lost someone to suicide and we want to do everything we can to prevent future losses." Mitch McBain adds, "If this song and initiative saves one more life, it will have been worth the effort."
