Mental Health Raw and Open World Suicide Awareness Day

Hi everyone,

It is World Suicide Prevention Day today, so I wanted to drop a short episode on awareness. Suicide rates have been increasing exponentially with no ending in sight. I would really appreciate if you could give this a listen, then maybe send it to a friend to listen and so on. 

Suicide, the word is noticed, but often the actions leading up to it are not. Check on your friends and family. Ask the question directly…”are you having suicidal thoughts”, it IS NOT going to put an idea in their head, however, it may, one day, save a life.

Stay strong and be well my friends, and thank you so much, as always, for your time.
