Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Saturday September 10, 2016 is World Suicide Prevention Day. "There’s been a rising epidemic in the US, and that epidemic is suicide. If we don’t know someone who had committed suicide, it’s almost certain that we know someone who has attempted it. Suicide is a problem that effects all age groups, genders, and social strata, and it seems sometimes to be utterly inescapable. This day raises awareness about this tragic issue and works to prevent it through education and support of those who struggle with suicidal ideation every day. Thankfully there are organizations like the World Health Organization who fight to combat this epidemic. With the philosophy of ‘Connect, Communicate, Care’ they work to create a world in which suicide rates are reduced or even eliminated. Celebrating World Suicide Prevention Day involves working to help fight suicide. One of the most effective techniques for this is following the ideals listed above. Connect with those who you discover may be in some form of emotional distress or considering suicide. Let them know they aren’t alone, and feel free to share bits of yourself in return, true connection requires a sharing, and those who are considering suicide are often adept at detecting false ones. You also have to open the venues of Communication, to be able to truly let others feel like you’re a safe place they can come to and be taken seriously without judgement. Too often are those suffering from real debilitating depression and suicidal ideation met with comments like “You’re just making it up” or “You’re being melodramatic”, when in fact their struggles are very real. World Suicide Prevention Day encourages you to truly care about those around you, and to work to help end the epidemic before it claims someone you love." ^sPm - #sharpharmade From 'Days of the Year'. #fit #suicide #world #prevention #worldsuicidepreventionday #worldsuicideprevention #linkinbio #lpt #follow #like #shar #share #wp #fb #ig #insta #tweet #twitter #pop #buffer #help #educate #health #beafriend #befriend . @instagram @sharpharmade
