Suicide Awareness, Prevention & Education
Better Brodhead partnered with the Jacob’s SWAG Foundation to promote the use of the new Got Your Back App. The Got Your Back App is new digital platform for suicide awareness, prevention, and education. There are tools custom built to help the user cope with anxiety and depression. The app provides a way for someone in crisis to contact crisis hotlines and send messages to their designated support team comprised of family and friends. There are also mindfulness and calming exercises to help guide the user through moments of anxiety. Additionally there is a nationwide support services locator as well as the ability to create a safety plan. Below you will see an animated video produced by Better Brodhead that further explains the app. We encourage you to utilize this life-saving resource.
