“I couldn’t make it….” being someone that has survived suicide attempts and sometimes still battle with depression, I can relate to Brandon. To get through, I’ve found it’s important to first think about the things I truly love, like hiking, my pets, traveling, and putting myself there. It helps ease some of sadness and feelings of lost hope that are felt so deeply when one is ready to give up. The next thing I do is talk to someone I feel loves me and that I love. I hate to see yet another teen gone. If you are a parent, a sibling, a partner or a friend to someone that you know is struggling, please let them know that you are here for them.
