September is suicide prevention awareness month

So it’s September 23 and I’m now sharing the ribbon. (It’s also Recovery month as well.)

However, for Suicide Prevention Month, I posted the Emotionally Naked t-shirts to wear out and show your support.

Keep talking and sharing the posts, this ribbon. Because of you,  I’m hearing a lot from young people, especially, about how to tell a parent they have thoughts of suicide. So they want to tell and they are asking how which is good.

  1. Hello I was wondering if someone could help me my cousin killed himself while facing charges the was showing all signs of being suicidal and even said he was going to kill himself well he did. I want to know how to start a campaign about sucide in jails and prisons

    1. Oh Malinda, I am so sorry. A pending criminal justice system was one of the reasons my son took his life. There are always other underlying reasons. I know I’ve read about suicides in jails and I’m not certain what group focuses on suicides in jails. I am sorry I don’t know more. And if you find a specific group, please come back and let me know.
