In the last couple of years this website hasn’t seen a lot of action. It’s mostly been a place holder for my 2010-2012 projects.
Since then I’ve been collaborating intensely on social media projects related to suicide prevention, and I want you to be able to find them.
The “Suicide Prevention Social Media” chat and community have taken off and expanded beyond anyone’s wildest expectations.
See an archive of chat announcements here: www.spsmchat.com

The #SPSM projects have included livestreamed chats, and interviews with experts in the field of suicide prevention. You can find these videos on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/aprilcforeman
So, what’s next? #SPSM chat starts Season 3, August 30, 2015. We’ve got great topics and guest experts scheduled, as well as new community features (including nifty badges you can earn while you play along from home).
We’ve also got several great #SPSM alum and community members appearing in a documentary that should be releasing in the next year.
In the three years since launching #SPSM chat I’ve learned a lot, and the take home message is this: People absolutely want to talk about suicide, and they want to do something about it. They were just waiting for an effective channel. What a privilege to be a part of building that.
“And, we’re LIVE!”
