Today is my birthday and, ironically (since I've been having a pretty bad time), #nationalsuicidepreventionday.
Make sure you look out for those you're close to, the signs aren't always easy to spot, but here are some more obvious reasons someone might be feeling like suicide is their only option.
Suicide isn't selfish, it's often what seems like the only choice left for that person, they even feel like they'd be doing everyone they care about a favour by choosing that route.
If anyone you know has been feeling down recently, ask them how they're doing, invite them for tea, just show them you care and that they are important to you.
If it's you reading this who has been feeling low, know that you are loved and that people care, because even if I don't know you I am here for you, just a message away if you need it 🖤
