Suicide Awareness

Suicidal thoughts, like mental illnesses, can strike someone at any age, irrespective of gender or background. Suicide is often the product of an unresolved mental health issue. Suicidal thoughts, while frequent, should not be taken lightly and frequently signal the presence of more serious problems.

Thousands of people commit suicide each year, leaving family and friends to cope with the tragedy of death. Family and friends who have been devastated by a suicide death are frequently kept in the dark. Shame and stigma prohibit them from speaking publicly all too often.
