Let's talk about depression, hopelessness and suicide.

by Jessie Hawkins

Hey...in the light of recent tragedy I wanted to share something with listeners and our website viewers. There are many reasons why people might be feeling despair and possibly contemplating suicide.  Whether it be a recent breakup or divorce, the loss of a loved one, financial trouble...maybe you're in legal trouble or feel you can't "rise above" a situation.  Maybe, you have a chemical imbalance and you don't understand why you have those feelings.  Before you make up your mind, please read the following info provided in the links below.  There are ways to change the thought process or the cycle of depression you may be experiencing.  It's not embarrassing, it's not "weird", it's nothing to be ashamed of if you feel like harming yourself...but it would be a tragic loss if you did.  Whether or not you know it, you are wanted, needed and valued. 

If you are struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide...please reach out.  Below are links where you can receive anonymous help or find out more about how you are feeling and why.  Thank-you.
