National Suicide Prevention Month

September is National Suicide Prevention Month. We hear stories and see the news about suicide. Although we see it, it’s not much conversation afterwards. I’ve had conversations that has contemplated and also that has tried to take their own lives. Every conversation has similarity, they felt no one cared and just wanted it to end.

We’ve seen countless Celebrities take their own life. Many run to the same response “They are rich, what more do they want”. In all reality emptiness can’t be fulfilled through material things. Let’s be a little kinder, answer the phone, and or check on your strong friends. Often we overlook what people have or what they show to have this fantasy life, that none of us have.

Given the pandemic we’re in, the protests, and political issues that we all are going through, suicide is steadily rising. Lost of jobs, people barely can feed their families, not to even mention the closing of schools. Talk to someone if you can, there are resources in most cities where you can go to the health clinic, and many programs created lately to really assist. Being that I’m not a legal representative for Mental Health I can only give my input and share resources.
