Link – Help Stop Tragedy: 7 Tips for Suicide Prevention Awareness

“According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), “Suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people ages 10-24 … [it] is often the result of mental health conditions that affect people when they are most vulnerable.”

Many of us assume that suicide could never happen to someone we love … but sadly, it happens every day. In fact, suicide was the 10th leading cause of death for all ages in the United States in 2013. It’s a serious issue that affects millions, and it’s time for us to take action.”

It has been beyond time to do something. We are losing far too many good people to untreated mental illness. I know a lot of people who have either lost someone they love, or made attempts themselves. (Including me once upon a time.)

We need to do better. We need to get people the support they need.
