Our mental health system must evolve; be more proactive in addressing suicide. If we wait until crisis occurs, we’re too late. We must address the precursors to suicidal ideation like stigma, trauma, & access to care, & prevent the crisis in the first place.

One of the lies depression tells you is, there is no hope. It will steal your motivation; tell you you’ll never get better. Depression is a liar. Truth is hope motivates us to achieve our goals, even that goal is to live one more day. Keep fighting. Keep hoping.
