One of the most important things that we can do is to let people suffering know that they are not alone. Apart we can do so little – as a community, we can do so much. Together we can, and we will, save lives.” – Akathisia Alliance for Suicide Prevention

FOLLOW THE PEA - (P) Prevention (E) Education (A) Awareness and Advocacy

PREVENTION begins with:

  1.  EDUCATION 

To better prevent Akathisia induced Suicides, one needs to understand Akathisia. The Akathisia Alliance strives daily to educate and research medication – induced Akathisia / Suicides. We have complied our years of research via our website and social platforms. Please, educate yourselves by utilizing our website to end medication – induced Akathisia.

2. AWARENESS and ADVOCACY

Once an individual understands Akathisia, it is then easier to spread awareness and advocate for those who are suffering with the condition. This is a very crucial step in suicide prevention, as many individuals with Akathisia are misunderstood.
