Roseanna's Story

A Message from Rosanna

"For many of us, suicide is an uncomfortable topic. There is often a fear that talking about suicide might cause someone to take his/her life. This simply is not true. Talking about suicide does not increase the likelihood that it will happen. We need to increase awareness about suicide prevention, and we need more education.

No matter how bad life might seem, there is hope. Suicide can be prevented. You can make a difference. By taking just a small amount of time to learn about suicide prevention, you can participate in the little steps that can help people who are hurting get the services they need. 

You could save a life."
