Join The Campaign

The Commit Campaign is a photo-based movement breaking the stigma associated with mental health and mental illness to ultimately reduce the nation’s suicide rate.

Members of The Commit Campaign strive to create a community to speak freely, without stigma on these topics. The Campaign educates through social media platforms, community networks, and community events to share educational materials, personal stories of those who are survivors of suicide loss and mental illness.

Led by Christina Tetreault and Kelsey Oney, survivors of suicide loss, and established in Phoenix, Arizona with Commit Campaign members across the country.

Vision

1. To provide a social media based community that provides raw experiences, hope, and encouragement.

2. To provide events to the community and public with resources for survivors of suicide loss and those who are currently struggling with mental health related issues.

3. To educate on the social implications of the use of the phrase ‘committed suicide.’ We encourage all to replace it with the term ‘died by suicide’ or phrase ‘he/she killed him/herself’.

4. To educate the public on various mood disorders and suicide prevention. 

5. To provide photo background opportunities at events and online for those to connect and share the Commit Campaign message and belief.
