Surviving the jump of a lifetime! Have you seen this video? Powerful! Thank you Kevin for your willingness and courage to create. He jumped; he survived the suicide attempt.
May we all realize people who attempt a suicide do not want to die. Depression, other mental illnesses, and addictions can be very powerful in the mind. The person suffering is not able to think clearly, rationally. Suicide is recognized as treatable.
Let us make an effort to come alongside those suffering, share a smile or a wave, and take time to see how your friends or family are really doing.
If you or someone you encounter is in need of help, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
