Link – Wilson: We need more than thoughts and prayers for mental health  

This is specific to Calgary and to trying to get more resources available there, but it could be said about any place in the world:

“Depression is common among those who die by their own hand, but other issues — like marital breakdown, a setback in finances, failing health, or a distinct lack of social support — can also create a perfect storm of events that together make suicide an all-too-common event.”

It is far too common. We are losing people right and left because when those perfect storms of events occur, there’s no place to go, no resources available. That’s not good enough.
