September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Many of us have been touched by suicide and the loss of a loved one, family member or friend. There are many factors alongside including depression and mental illness that influence a person’s decision to go through with suicide: chronic, ill health, guilt, trauma, substance abuse or loss, are examples. When the mind is so dark, it can be hard to see any possibility for future happiness, but it can - and often does - get better.
