Note from the founder
We've learned a lot in the past few years while developing and deploying the Suicide Prevention App. Our takeoff was shaky, our initial products were less than good, and we've had our fair share of hiccups and setbacks along the way. However, we didn't give up, we kept our nose to the grindstone and have constantly strived to iterate our product to be the best it can be with the resources we had.
Are we done yet? No way in hell! We still have many more hills to climb, eons of obstacles to overcome, and unforeseen challenges ahead of us that will attempt to break us down beyond repair. That's just it though... of the many challenges our team has faced, myself included, consideration has been entertained that giving up was the answer, but the reality is this: quitting is not an option!
The same fortitude we demand upon ourselves to do our best and never give up, is the same outlook we hope to bestow upon those that use our tools to overcome challenges of their own. We hope that we can help individuals find a glimmer of light in the darkness, and develop the courage to overcome their current situation so that they can grow and become stronger than they were before.
I want to give a special shout-out and say thank you to all the people that participated in tireless testing, seemingly endless hours of development, conducted extensive feedback and analysis, participated in our many studies, conducted clinical evaluations of the assessment model, and everyone that supported us throughout the years. We couldn't have done this without you!
