National Suicide Prevention Week

Sunday, September 10, 2017, 12:00 AM - Saturday, September 16, 2017, 12:00 AM


On April 5, 2013, my beautiful, unique, gifted and dearly loved son, Matthew, took his life. As a family, we were devastated by his death. Every day in the US, that heartbreaking tragedy is repeated as 117 other beautiful, unique, gifted and dearly loved husbands, wives, sons, daughters, moms, dads and friends ultimately find life unbearable and die by suicide. September 10th-16th is National Suicide Prevention Week, and I’ll be posting videos, stories, information, and inspiration that you can share as we focus on ways to s top suicide. I join with millions of other caring Americans to be a voice of encouragement, support, and most of all – HOPE – for anyone struggling to find a reason to stay alive.

To talk with someone right now, call 1-800-273- TALK.
