Special Holiday Message From Your Life Counts

The Importance of a Promise

Over the last 10+ years we have encouraged families and friends to take time over the holidays to make a promise to live to each other and that if they ever feel suicidal they will reach out for help. At the lunch table or whatever the opportunity please take that precious time. Families, extended families, blended families…take time to make this promise to each other as it may save your life or a loved one’s life.

Rory ButlerOur hearts go out to those who have lost a loved one to suicide. If you know someone who has suffered losing a loved one to suicide please encourage them this holiday season. A phone call, a card…an act of kindness will help them to know that someone cares.

Please read this letter from Dr Adrian Hill and families who are speaking up for YLC. We need your help to continue our life saving work. May I also take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers, advisors, families and friends for your help in every aspect of our work.

Without you, none of our work would be possible. There are too many folk to mention – you know who you are and on behalf of the youth and families whom we are here to serve we salute you! Have a wonderful holiday season.


Rory Butler, Founder  

P.S. I am currently writing a book around this crucial conversation that every family needs to have and would welcome hearing from you anytime.
