“Suicide is an epidemic. The culture of shame that impedes the critical discussion of emotional and mental illness among our youth has to change.”
Let’s talk about it. It’s time for a new discussion. Shame leads to isolation. Isolation feeds hopelessness. Hopelessness is the basis for suicide. Talking leads to connection. Connection creates hope. Learning healthy thought process and self-awareness leads to productive lives.
