This week marks Suicide Prevention Week. Whether the ripples of suicide effected you or not, this is a topic everyone should take seriously. We live in a society where now more than ever, the need to put time and resources into mental health is dire.
If you know someone that might be at risk of suicide, learn the signs and take action. It may not seem like it now, but they will thank you in time.
If it's you that has the overwhelming feeling of taking your own life, think about who you'll leave behind and hurt the most. Even if it may not seem like it, you are loved and are important to someone. If you need help looking for treatment, you can enter your zip code here and find the nearest facilities.
If you need immediate crisis intervention, call 911 or The National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255.
Take care of yourself, and the ones in your life that are most vulnerable.
