April is the month with the highest suicide rates. If you or a loved one are struggling I urge you to reach out to a friend, a family member, a teacher, counselor, pastor, just somebody. I urge you to call the free and 24/7 national hotline 1-800-273-8255. You’re not alone, you are valued, and you are loved.
I am beyond thankful to know so many amazing individuals in this world. Yesterday @uiactiveminds walked together in the Out of the Darkness Walk to continue raising awareness for mental health and suicide prevention. Nearly $5,000 were donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. It’s important to keep talking about this. We have to end the stigma. We have to show solidarity and support for our peers. I am so thankful to be in a community where #HawksHelpHawks. 💛
