Posting the Suicide Hotline Isn’t Enough

So it’s World Suicide Prevention Day. And that’s a good thing to bring awareness to.

But how does one actually help the cause? I’ve seen a lot of posting of the suicide prevention hotline, and that’s all fine and dandy. Maybe some people aren’t aware that there’s help like that out there.

But here’s the truth.

Most of us are.

So posting it won’t help the vast majority of viewers. Instead you should make yourself available personally to talk to, and more importantly, treat others like you would like to be treated. Practice this in your everyday life, not just on Suicide Prevention Day.

It’s that simple.
