🙏September is National Suicide Awareness Month‼️
One person dies by suicide every 40s. That’s 800,000 people a year
This is alarming
This is also alarming…
“There are indications that for each adult who died by suicide there may have been more than 20 others attempting suicide.” WHO
Thats 16,000,000 PEOPLE‼️
48% of the world is using the internet…
We all struggle with this in some way.
The stigma exists‼️
Join the fight and tear down one of the biggest barriers to preventing #help from getting to those who need it. Awareness is jut one part of the solution. Ignorance is a problem. The stigma is a contributor.
“In much of the world, suicide is stigmatized and condemned for religious or cultural reasons. In some countries, suicidal behavior is a criminal offence punishable by law. Suicide is therefore often a secretive act surrounded by taboo, and may be unrecognized, misclassified or deliberately hidden in official records of death.” Wikipedia
“Learning about suicide prevention during the month of September is a great way to educate yourself and others. If you or someone you know needs emergency assistance, contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. Find more help at www.nami.org/Find-Support.”
“It remains an enigma
When you add to the stigma”
I cannot tell you how close this is to my heart
It is a miracle I am here, that we all are in a way
See the value of life and bypass the flaws with your duty to help one another
We all have a right to life and the birthright of dignity to go with it.
When there is no sense of self worth, you are fighting the fiercest of battles.
🧚♀️Beautiful and 🌹Precious People🙏I love you❤️
