#BeThe1To Save a Life!

At CPNP 2019, the CPNP Foundation is encouraging all attendees to take action! Psychiatric health care professionals know that mental illness is often associated with suicidal thoughts. One small action can make a huge difference and can ultimately save a life! BeThe1To:

  1. ASK how someone is feeling.
  2. KEEP THEM SAFE if someone is having thoughts about self-harm.
  3. BE THERE if someone feels alone.
  4. HELP THEM CONNECT if someone is feeling withdrawn.
  5. FOLLOW UP if you have spoken to someone about suicidal thoughts or behaviors.

Together, we can prevent suicide. Learn more at

What Can You Do?

Through powerful words and actions, we can all work together to prevent suicide. Here are a few ways that you can show your commitment to taking action during CPNP 2019!

  1. Attend a pre-meeting workshop: Suicide Prevention, Assessment, and Management Strategies for Pharmacy Professionals (pharmacists and residents) OR Mental Health First Aid (students).

  2. Show your support by signing the #BeThe1To wall at the CPNP Foundation booth!

  3. Take a picture in front of the #BeThe1To wall and share over social media to encourage others.

  4. Purchase a #BeThe1To t-shirt (pictured right)! Your $25 purchase supports the CPNP Foundation and NAMI equally. Proudly wear your shirt and encourage others to Ask, Keep Them Safe, Be There, Help Them Connect, and Follow Up. To reserve your size, purchase a t-shirt by the March 7 early registration deadline.

  5. Share this page on Facebook and tell everyone to #BeThe1To save a life!

Thank you for doing your part to bring awareness to ways that everyone can help prevent suicide!
