It gets better!


Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Suicide prevention is important to me because I am alive because of people who cared enough to make sure I was alive.

Each year 800,000 people die of suicide. That's 800,000 people whose life ends too early. That's one person every 40 seconds. By the time you finish reading this post, a handful of people will have taken their life.

Instead of attaching a stigma to suicide, we need to raise support and awareness. Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

If you are fighting this battle, you are not alone. Your story matters. No one else can play your part in life.

If you are in need of support or guidance, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or contact me at c8dimm@gmail.com.
