In Germany, hundreds of people commit suicide each year because of spiritual desperation and inner conflicts - and many others attempt it.
The association "Arbeitskreis Leben Karlsruhe" has been accompanying suicidal persons, survivors of suicide attempts and their families since 1990, mainly on a voluntary basis.
Together with those who are looking for help, it searches for relief options in the respective crisis situations. The association offers counseling and daily support for a limited time.
At present, a staff of two is sharing one job. However, since the need for counseling, and online queries in particular, is growing all the time, it is necessary to create an additional position.In addition, a projector, a screen and a notebook are needed to enable better presentations on the topic of suicide at school events, among others.
Daimler is contributing € 2,350 for the computer and media equipment in the framework of its ProCent employee campaign and thus supports the improvement in the counseling and prevention possibilities of the association.
