#YouMatter - How to Get Help in Crisis (Suicide/988) 🫶

#YouMatter is more than just a hashtag; it's a message of compassion and support. It's about reminding every single person that they are valued, loved, and cherished. In a world that can sometimes feel overwhelming, you should know that your existence matters, and there's help and hope available when you need it most. 💖

As part of the #YouMatter campaign, I've been creating emoji pop art and curating lists of essential resources for those who may be going through a tough time. These lists include important lifelines like 988, RAINN, and a comprehensive collection of national crisis hotlines covering various situations, from domestic violence to teen support, LGBTQ+ concerns, assistance for veterans, suicide prevention, and help for those battling substance addiction. 🌈✨
