Next up: Suicide and related topics

As we wrap up our emphasis on joy and related topics, we move into a most serious and pervasive topic: suicide. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month:

September 10 is designated as World Suicide Prevention Day by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP).

Therefore, for the month of September, posts will be addressing suicide and related topics, including hope. If you or you know someone who is suicidal or is contemplating suicide, PLEASE GET HELP. IMMEDIATELY.
