A Must-Watch Video Reminds People In Lebanon That Talking Saves Lives

Embrace Lebanon

This article discusses and/or reports on the topic of suicide. If you or someone you know needs to talk to someone, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the friendly team at Embrace by calling 1564.

In its latest mental health awareness campaign, Embrace Lebanon follows the stories of Lara, Karim, Raja, and Faten, which depict the daily lives of every average Lebanese struggling in today’s Lebanon.

Shortages in petrol, bread, money, and electricity, a monster explosion that traumatized the country and its people, the sadness of separation and departure, being left with no choice but to leave the country, or being stuck inside it forever.

These are just some of the dire living conditions Lebanese are facing today.

It is a collective struggle felt by Lebanese across the board making people like fish in a fishbowl of difficult moments, which they breathe, eat, sleep, and repeat. But Embrace Lebanon comes to remind us all that we are not alone.

If you feel in despair, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the friendly team at Embrace. Call 1564.

The campaign “serves as a reminder to our community that it is vital to talk….because #TalkingSavesLives,” wrote Hiba Dandachli, the Communications Director at the award-winning NGO Embrace Lebanon.

The campaign highlights The Lifeline (1564) – The National Hotline for Emotional Support and Suicide Prevention Hotline, in partnership with the National Mental Health Program at the Ministry of Public Health. 

Trained volunteers are available at any time between 8:30 AM and 5:30 AM to listen and provide a safe space for callers to express their feelings.

They provide emotional support, as well as assess and manage suicide risk, and guide people to mental health services in Lebanon.

If you feel in despair, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the friendly team at Embrace. Call 1564.
