"The history of "bail out actions" date back to free Black folks and supporters buying one another's freedom in various ways during slavery. It is in this tradition and commitment to liberation that we, at the National Bail Out, exist. We are proud to bear witness and inspire its continuation with the Mass Bail Out action. Together we will not only bring our mamas, daughters, sons and family home we also will shut down Rikers and jails across the country and transform these systems that harm our communities." - Arissa Hall, National Bail Out
Did you know that eating disorders are estimated to affect between 600,000 and 725,000 people in the UK?
NICE guidelines suggest that this figure may actually be even higher, and up to 1.6 million people may be affected 💡

so like this song means the entire world to me. it gets me so emotional everytime i listen to it and that's down to both the lyrics & music video. the music video conveys such an important message which also links with the message in the lyrics. it's such a powerful song. and i can relate to it a lot.
I've been meaning to share this treasure I found. It was early this last spring, I was leaving my ex boyfriends house and I had to walk alone in the rain to my car across town. It was right outside the lowell inn that I saw this little heart hanging in a bush. It was beautiful timing and it made my dreary day a little brighter. I still keep it hanging in my window, and every now and then it provokes a smile. Thank you 💞 #peytonheartproject#suicideawareness#spreadlovestillwater#MN#stillwater#loveyou
Britt's art was one of her many passions, one of her many talents 🤜🤛 Britt would find comfort in picking up a pen and paper and create her designs freehand. Her lines were perfected in each and every drawing, a form of release, a form of expression.
Yesterday my niece bravely had one of Britt's pieces tattooed on her back, one of the memories she left us.
Our talented brother from another Mother in Bali brought it to life... #brittanyhura#suicideprevention#suicideawareness#tattoo#tamoko

I wish i could, could have said goodbye. I would have said what I wanted to. Maybe even cried for you. If I knew it would have been the last time I would have broke my heart in two. Trying to save part of you. Don’t want to feel another touch. Don’t want to start another fire. Don’t want to know another kiss. No other name falling off my lips. Don’t want to give my heart away to another stranger. Or let another day begin. Won’t even let the sunlight in. No I’ll never love again. When we first met. I never thought that I would fall. I never thought that I’d find myself lying in your arms. And I wanna pretend it’s not true oh baby that you’re gone. Cause my world keeps turning and turning and turning and I’m not moving on. 😩😢 sitting here replaying this song crying I just wish this song didn’t hit so close to home but sadly it does. #suicideawareness#suicidewidow#army#ladygaga#illneverloveagain#goldstarfamily#iwishicouldhavesavedyou#mysoldier#missingyou#whydidyouleavemebehind#fuckptsd
Today we received terrible news about an incredibly close
family friend that has rocked us.
It’s put us in a very reflective mood and also put lots into perspective.
If anyone out there reading this is struggling, feeling low, depressed, sad, lonely...ANYTHING. Please please please talk about it, reach out to me...even if we’ve never spoken before I AM HERE FOR YOU.
Dont let your sadness consume you so that you start to consider the unthinkable.
You mean more to the people you leave behind than you’ll ever know.
Tonight many of us will be sleeping with broken hearts.
In the forest, there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. Every day, the straight tree would say to the crooked tree, "Look at me...I'm tall, and I'm straight, and I'm handsome. Look at you...you're all crooked and bent over. No one wants to look at you." And they grew up in that forest together. And then one day the loggers came, and they saw the crooked tree and the straight tree, and they said, "Just cut the straight trees and leave the rest." So the loggers turned all the straight trees into lumber and toothpicks and paper. And the crooked tree is still there, growing stronger and stranger every day.

It still breaks my heart every.single.day that you’re not here. .
I remember when you sent me this picture. You were super proud of yourself for MacGyvering the coolest bubble contraption and you proclaimed yourself The Bubble Master...I of course followed up sarcastically with how sexy it was that you’re a “Bubble Master”...which got a good laugh out of you. .
Tuesday I was driving past a shopping center and saw this guy standing outside of the new Mission BBQ restaurant. He could have been your doppelgänger. He looked so much like you that I was tempted to stop my car and just talk to him...but I probably would have burst into tears...and nobody wants to see me cry in a stranger’s face...so I kept driving. That sighting has stuck with me though. It’s sent my mind into the same spiral once again.
My heart hurts so much this week. It hurts every week, every day, all the time. I ask the same questions to myself everyday. Why? What could I have done to stop this? How could you not see how much you were loved by the people that mattered? What in the actual fuck were you thinking? What happened to everything we talked about?
I’m just here...rambling...but I just wish that I could stop being so angry and heartbroken at the same time. I wish I didn’t have to miss you like this.
Come join us on Monday at @barbarianbrewingidaho for a post-conference mixer hosted by the Western States Conference on Suicide. @vagabondbakeryboise will be selling our cake balls to help raise money for suicide awareness!
This month marks 30 years since my first #suicide attempt. To keep the conversation going, I will post 30 things that have helped me through the hard times, in no particular order.
Day 15 - My God. The face of the God that calls to me is Cernunnos, the Horned God of the forest. He is a wild God, just like the animals and trees he protects. I believe that every animal, every plant, every stone, even the ground itself has a soul, and he helps us connect to that. He is not all kind and good, though. Like I mentioned, he is wild. He is the hunting wolf, the raging storm, and the all-consuming forest fire. He is nature and he is beautiful. ❤
Everyone please understand the importance of this post!! We have all suffered in one way or another but we can get through tough times. I know the pain of feeling unwanted or useless but please understand you hurt others more than your self when you harm yourself. Pls dm if you need any help so I can direct you to someone who knows how to help. #suicideawareness#youareloved#youmatter

today, i am bursting with pride.
if you didn’t know, my gorgeous boyfriend @alex080118 is not only the greatest thing that ever happened to me, but is also a survivor of mental illness himself.
one year ago, my love nearly lost his life in a suicide attempt.
i won’t go into details, but he’s gone through a lot to get here right now.
i’m so happy that you survived, my lovely.
because the inclusion of you in my life has fully changed me as a person too.
you’re not only my inspiration, you’re my motivation; you’ve helped to create a better version of millie, one that isn’t afraid to take leaps and bounds in recovery, one that has fully accepted herself and her sexuality.
anniversaries of events, especially those related to mental health issues can be incredibly hard to combat.
you have come so far since that moment.
alex has come out as transgender and improved mentally in a large way in this year alone.
and, when i’m struggling, i remember his story. i remember what he’s been through.
and i remind myself that things can and will get better; i’m gonna have to fight my ass off for them, but they will.
so, here’s to you, alexander.
here’s to making so many more happy memories.
here’s to overpowering the bad ones.
we can do this. together. ♥️
Did you know, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is attempting to move forward with a plan to build a new women’s jail in Lancaster as part of a massive $3.7 billion jail construction plan.
You still have the opportunity to get involved to stop this racist and destructive jail project but they must act before it’s too late!

“But photos don’t show it all - the really REALLY hard days, the extreme anxiety and grief I’ve dealt with in the past, the rock bottom that I hit during college. They don’t show the tears, the racing heart, the irrational thoughts I used to have about my life, myself and my body.
And I’m overjoyed today to say I take such better care of my mental health and because of that I AM that laughing, happy, bubbly girl 85% of the time. And the other 15%? I still struggle at times. I get anxious (especially after my I have my UC injections). I get fearful (mainly about UC). I get overwhelmed. Because that is LIFE, but I have the TOOLS now to help myself and I don’t feel ashamed to admit when I have those moments any longer.
If you’re struggling - seek help, don’t be ashamed to admit you need it (my counselor in college was the hugest help and I am so incredibly grateful that I was guided to see him) and love yourself. Love yourself so dang hard through the difficult days, weeks, months and even years. Give yourself grace and know you CAN and WILL see better days. You deserve to feel happy, worthy and enough (because you are!!!)”
