Iraq Vet and Teen Say “Thank You” to Lifeline via Avatars

In Hotlines, Intervention, Prevention on August 4, 2009 at 10:10 pm

Since last December, when I invited SPNAC readers to share their stories through the avatar-based interface on the Lifeline Gallery, there have been at least two noteworthy developments that I haven’t yet reported.

One was shared just last month by Amanda Lehner of Lifeline in a post on the network’s Crisis Centers blog:

Two recent avatars stories (from an Iraq combat vet and a 13 year-old girl) on specifically thank Lifeline for helping to save their lives.

The other development appeared several months ago when Dr. Phil shared a suicide prevention message through his avatar on the Gallery.

  1. I just lost ANOTHER friend to suicide this week. I am very say he is gone but seeing this news gives me hope that lives are in fact being saved.
