    Riding for a Reason: One Entrepreneur's Mission to Raise Awareness for Suicide Prevention
    Riding for a Reason: One Entrepreneur's Mission to Raise Awareness for Suicide Prevention About six years ago, I was sitting at my computer doing something unimportant when my daughter walked in in tears and told me one of her dearest friends killed himself. He was only 18 and he jumped from a building in downtown Fairfax, ending his...

    Unfortunately for me, I do know the figures worldwide as I have been looking into this for a short film I am writing, and staggering they are! This is a very important issue that needs addressing and in everyway possible. I knew two of my childhood aquantances who took their own lives and I saw frst hand the devistation it causes the families that remain. More needs to be done to raise awareness

    #8 I would too. I think of all the talented people who are suffering, yet have so much to give. Robin Williams comes to mind. Perhaps because he appeared on the outside to be just the opposite of depressed. A true issue that NEEDS awareness.

    Josh Quigley's journey is one I have been following for about six weeks. It is the very essence of understanding what life is all about. Thank you, @Christine Stevens for so eloquently sharing his mission and the fact that we all need to reach out to the people in our lives who may be having a tough time. It may be more serious than we can imagine and the gift we can give with our time and concern may be priceless.

    #5 Jared, I get choked up still when I think about that young man who ended his life. It had a profound impact on my daughter's life as well - she now works as a case manager helping people with mental illnesses navigate day-to-day life.

    This is great. Mental illness and depression tend to be stigmatized. It's good to see a push for acceptance of our flaws as human beings and rather than punishing ourselves for them, strive for healing.

    Absolutely brilliant post, @Christine Stevens. You've turned on a light for hopefully so many!
    You engaged us. Hell, you got me all choked up.
    You've pointed out resources and ways we can all help. There is always hope.
