Sorry, I have been truly busy over the past few months, which is why I haven’t updated in a while.
Anyway. It is September again, which means that yes, it’s that time of the year when the awareness campaign has the most impact on me.
Today is the beginning of Suicide Prevention Week (September 7-13) and here are some of the articles I’ve written about the topic in the past few years:
Thirteen Reasons Why – (Inspired by Jay Asher’s book) Hannah Baked gave thirteen reasons why she killed herself. Here are thirteen reasons why you shouldn’t.
World Suicide Prevention Day 2013 (You Cannot Be Replaced) – Suicide is something that should be talked about. 2/3 of those who are depressed do not seek help, and at its worse, untreated depression leads to suicide.
Suicide Prevention Month 2014 – Lists that can help you through bad days, including Songs to Get You Through Bad Days, Books That (Almost) Accurately Depict Depression and Suicide, Movies that Depict and/or Help Us Understand Suicide and Depression, and Words to Live By.
Suicide Prevention Day 2014 – Celebrity Deaths (this was written a few weeks after the death of Robin Williams), and Information on Suicide, Depression, and what you can do to help.
I’ll check in again soon, but for now I have to get back to work… there are twenty articles here (Thirteen Reasons Why has fourteen articles in all) so I think this will suffice for now.
I will check back on the tenth.
As for the photo above, To Write Love On Her Arms will explain that for you.
For now, remember: Help is Real, and Hope is Real.
We’ll see you tomorrow.
