Joomla-based Website Supports Teen Suicide Prevention Community

U Matter U Can Get Help

UMatter, U Can Get Help is devoted to suicide prevention for teens in Vermont. This site was chosen as Site of the Month, January 2012, in the Joomla Site Showcase!

The Problem

The Center for Health and Learning approached 4Web, asking for a teen-friendly way to display resources to prevent teen suicide, including online quizzes, embedded videos, stories from students, contact directory for professional help, and more.

The Solution

Joomla was able to incorporate a variety of extensions to present this important and serious material in an age-appropriate way. This included a Flash-based tag cloud, interactive quizzes, maps of counseling resources, video players, and more.


I like the process of asking questions before offering solutions that is used. It gets me thinking my plan through and often solves problems before they occur.  4Web is detailed and process oriented. 4Web was willing to be collaborative and creative, even when it was beyond the scope of the job and more custom than anticipated. The product became a showpiece that helped us stand apart from other resources.
