Hope for Suicidal Despair!
 
Suicide is not typically an impulsive act. 
 
Eric Beeson, core faculty member at Northwestern University's Counseling Center comments in Chicago Tribune newspaper June 10, 2018 that while we want to settle on one cause in order to give us answers, suicide is complicated.

Generally suicide is a long process that starts with ideas that gradually take over his/her mind.

Wearing a mask is what we all do.  For suicidal persons, that mask becomes more intense. 

TALKING ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS AND SUICIDE HELPS PEOPLE FEEL LESS SHAMEFUL ABOUT GETTING HELP!
