Suicide Is Real

depression
bullying
eating disorders
suicide and suicidal thoughts
… and everything else in between

These are very real problems and shouldn’t be locked up in a closet somewhere. This is just one of the many, many scenarios of what you may be going through.

Please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 if this is you or someone you know.

It’s more common than what gets publicized,
more common now than before.
More and more people
think it’s the way to go.
A trend more among children and teens.

Suicide is a taboo subject.
No one wants to talk about it
but at this very instance
your brother, sister, aunt, uncle,
cousin, friend, best friend,
boyfriend, girlfriend, son or daughter
even father, mother,
grandfather or grandmother…
the people you’d least expect to end up in a grave
could be contemplating suicide
or experiencing a past attempt.

The fact is that
SUICIDE IS REAL.
It may never hit home for you
but every couple of minutes
someone makes an attempt to end his or her own life
by hanging, overdosing,
firing a single gunshot to the head, etc
…somewhere around the world
…someone will die by his or her
own trembling hands.
