It’s World Suicide Prevention Week 2016, so this is a video blog I made to help more people understand and recognize the different warning signs from someone who might be contemplating suicide, so that they can be helped on time. Please stop suicide. Because life matters. Every life is precious.

It is sad that more people aren’t aware of mentalhealth awareness or they just don’t want to know. They don’t understand how important it is to understand mental illness and the dire consequences it might have if it goes mistreated.
The biggest reason mental illness goes mistreated is because people are ashamed of opening up about it, because society has put such a huge stigma on it. We lose millions of lives everyday to suicide. That can be changed with a little bit of awareness on our part, on society’s part.
We can save hundreds of lives.
I hope that you will join me in my fight to change society’s perspective of mental illness, so we can help bring change together.
