You know, speaking their their voice and their experience, and and providing insights into this major public health crisis of suicide, but over the last few years people with their own what's called lived experience of suicide attempts or any kind of mental health struggle really are coming to the fore, and you know, we're hosting panels of the voices of people with lived experience on Capitol Hill, and in the White House and all over the place for clinicians and researchers for policymakers, and that's. That's really a game changer.
