September 8-14th is suicide prevention week. Please do this in support of everyone who has overcome their fight or are still trying. If you are in need of help please call 1-800-273-8255 or share this number with everyone.

My ex husband's cousin took her own life 14 years ago this past July. We (ex husband & I) didn't find out until 2 months later. I never knew his cousin but have heard wonderful stories about her & wish my kids could have grown up knowing their "cousin".

My nephews best friend took his own life a yr ago this past feb, he was only 16 yrs old and his classmates are having time trying to get the school to hold a memorial for him like they did the other fallen classmates. He would have been a senior this yr and it's so sad to see the school adminastration acting like the kids are trying to say hey it's ok to do what he did but that's not what they are doing they just want a memorial for him, i feel so bad for these kids.

I lost my mom to suicide nov 1 1998, i was 19.There simply isn't enough awareness for mental health. Each year in her honour I gather sponsors and walk in her memory for our local suicide awareness 5k walk. I encourage more to do so. Tomorrow is officially national suicide awareness day!
