The NSV Blog loves to share about other blogs that help keep kids safe. You Matter, from the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, shares stories from youth about their experience with suicide and mental illness.
The most recent post includes “How The ‘Out of The Darkness Walk’ Helped Me Continue On”, a first-hand account of someone who participated in the Out of Darkness Walks, nationwide events that raise awareness about suicide and its prevention. Kayla (the writer) expresses her experience about how having a community to support her, after the suicide of her mother, helps her have a purpose to live on.
These inspirational stories in this blog can be helpful to those considering suicide, survivors of suicide, or friends and supporters. Please share this blog. Possibly, the more the branches of this tree expand, the more lives that can be saved.
