Thanks for your interest in learning more about the upcoming Bend Not Break Suicide Awareness Event. We hope you will join our cause as we shine light on a pervasive problem that affects families throughout the nation.
 
You may be one of the many who has been affected by the tragic loss of a friend or loved one to suicide.  Maybe you have been on the other side of a terrifying conversation with someone who was struggling. You may have personally experienced thoughts of suicide. These experiences, conversations, and thoughts are occurring constantly throughout our community and it leaves people feeling lost, ashamed and alone. If so, you are not alone. This is a prevalent and widespread problem. Our interest is specifically focused on teenagers as we believe early mental health intervention is essential.


Event Components
-- Concert with Alex Boyé featuring local high school choirs. Local personalities and mental health professionals will open the event by sharing appropriate lived experiences, teaching tools, and advocating for mental health and connectedness within the community.
-- Booths featuring community resources will be present (local suicide hotline, counselors, community groups, school representatives, local churches, etc.)


ALEX BOYÉ CRUSADE STORY
At age 16, musician and entertainer Alex Boyé found himself homeless and alone on the streets of London, eating out of trash cans. Unsatisfied with his life filled with abuse, Alex made a plan to dance away his sadness at a local nightclub and then take his life. Alex Boyé experienced the depth of darkness in his soul full of unbearable pain, that even to this day, he finds it hard to explain. But to get rid of the pain, he decided that Suicide was the only escape. Moments before he carried out the act of Suicide to end his excruciating pain, a song dedicated by the DJ in his honor saved his life. That song and music spoke to his soul and filled him with hope, and it  changed the course of his life.

WHY ALEX BOYÉ?
At the age of 16, Alex attempted to take his life, but was saved by the lyrics to a song, which ultimately changed the direction of his life. In 2019, Alex Boyé wrote a moving song about suicide prevention called Bend Not Break, which turned into an anthem for survivors. Since then, spreading this important message has become his lifelong mission. We think Alex describes it best in this video where he explains the story behind the song and context of the meaningful music video.
 
Alex Boyé has been a part of multiple suicide prevention events elsewhere. By any measure, these events have been successful and impactful for each community. Here is a short video montage of a Mountain America Credit Union-sponsored event in Sandy, UT. Here is a quick video clip showing the attendance at a recent event. Thanks to social media, many shared, posted and messaged about the positive impact the event had on them personally. First responders also reached out to report tangible outcomes, like the emergency dispatch employee that wrote: 
 
“Sometimes we do things and don’t really know the outcome. It has been 5 days since your show here. I thought I would share with you that we haven’t had a suicide the past 5 days (where we had 3 the week you came) and our suicide ideation calls to law enforcement have been averaging 1-2 a day the past 5 days compared to 4-6 before your show. I truly believe you are making a difference.”
