🙏September is National Suicide Awareness Month‼️

🙏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‼️

Ignorance resists‼️

Awareness persists‼️

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”

#Opism

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❤️

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
