What does our logo mean?

The 8 pointed star symbolizes hope and guidance. 

The circle signifies protection; it has no breaks, and cannot be broken. 

 

The inner star (4 points) points to the North, East, South, and West.

The outer star (4 points) leads to the Summer Solstice where the sun's path would be at its furthest North. The days are the longest here. 

This is a time of renewal, great potential, and hope for the future.

The colors signify the suicide prevention colors.

What does this have to do with the STF and Suicide Prevention?

     The STF offers hope and guidance to those struggling, and to those who have lost someone to suicide.  The belief of the time of renewal, great potential, and hope for the future is signified because we want those struggling to know there is a time of renewal, they have great potential, and we want them to have hope for the future!
