Breaking the Silence of Suicide

Suicide is not something that you hear a lot about on a regular basis. After personal experience with it, I discovered that it is far more prevalent than I ever knew.

If we can begin to speak to each other about it, maybe we can begin to end the stigma that people who are thinking of suicide feel. Without that stigma, maybe they will talk to someone. If they talk to someone, maybe they will find their way out of the darkness.

If we begin to talk about it, maybe those who are affected by the death of a loved one by suicide will stop feeling ashamed and be able to grieve without the need to hide the reasons.

If we begin to talk about it, maybe we can change the way depression is viewed and treated.

If we begin to talk about it, maybe we will save a life. Even one is worth it.
