Suicide

"Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem". --Unknown

One of my friends stepdad hung himself a few days ago. His mom wants to tell his step-brother that he was really 'sick'. She means well, but I don't think it's right. Him also being 19, old enough to feel and think on his own

There are no answers or easy solutions. Grieving is a hard, sometimes arduous process and we all do things differently. We talked about some support strategies last night given the nature of my work. But it's not easy

I think the biggest thing we can do when someone is grieving no matter what is to share in that burden of pain and helplessness when the time comes and when they can reach out for help, you will be there to support them.

Support. Not catch them where they fall, and let then grieve. My heart goes out to all the survivors (people/family/friends left behind after a death by suicide

Let your loved ones know how you feel today. Life isn't as scary when we hav supportive people around us. Sometimes the single act of a smile or kindness can make a huge difference in the lives of others...
