Overcoming Teen Suicide

You are not alone

You Story has Just Begun

No matter how bad things seem, there’s a good chance that someone else has been there. And if they made it, so can you.


Every Day is a Gift

Rachel’s Challenge has reached over 30 million people, and every year we receive unsolicited emails, letters, and social media posts from students who tell us they were planning to take their own life until they heard Rachel’s story and decided they wanted to live. They no longer felt hopeless, but hopeful – they realized that their life could matter. We have compiled a collection of their stories in a book titled, Saved By a Story. Discover how many people have weathered the storm, by getting your own free copy, below.
