This website was created as a doctoral project of William James College in Newton, Massachusetts, USA; it is an initiative of Vive Con Vida (founded in 2013 by the author of this project, Paulina Fuentes Moad), which is a Mexican non-profit organization and trademark product intended to provide culturally sensitive psycho-education about suicide risk and prevention to Mexican youth. Hopefully, this initiative will be a first step in starting a conversation with both public/mental health specialists and policy makers about how to increase suicide awareness and prevention among Mexican youth.
The content of this website will be updated periodically. Vive Con Vida staff does not provide crisis intervention services through e-mail or any other means. If you and/or a loved one is feeling suicidal, please call 911 or go to your nearest ER.
