September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.
I am trying to use this month to make an even bigger push to let people know that it is okay to talk about depression and suicide. I have talked with far too many people who are either afraid or unwilling to open up about these things.
The sad truth is that silence is dangerous and deadly when it comes to serious mental health struggles.
I had trouble talking about these things and often just tried to push them away as a child and growing up. It also wasn’t until recently that I allowed myself to feel fine with crying more often when I feel like it.
Here’s the information about the Crisis Text Line for you and to share with those you love:
