prevention awareness


988 is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number. Help us get the message out by naming a beer 988 during National Suicide Prevention Month in September. We want to make this easy for everyone to participate. Rename or relabel any beer, whether it’s a beer on your tap list or a beer you distribute, the important thing is to get the 988 number in front of people and start conversations. If you want to brew a special batch, that’s great too! Can it or simply put it on tap. This collaboration is open to your creativity. We just ask that you sign-up up so we can collectively raise awareness with a common message.

Donate (optional)

Donating is not required. We want you to do what works best for your brewery. If you choose to donate a portion of beer proceeds, we recommend contacting your local and state suicide prevention organizations or one of the national organizations.

The history

Six years ago, we brewed our first batch of “1-800-273-TALK” in the hopes to spread awareness and start conversations. Last year, over 75 other local & national partners featured a beer named with the Lifeline number: 1-800-273-TALK. Portions of beer sales were donated to suicide prevention organizations, but the primary goal was to spread awareness and start conversations. One conversation can save a life. Research shows that acknowledging and talking about suicide may reduce rather than increase suicidal ideation. Understanding the issues concerning suicide and mental health is an important way to take part in suicide prevention, help others in crisis, and change the conversation around suicide.
