Let's Talk About Suicide
Talking about suicide with a person in crisis does not incite or push the person to act on it. Rather, it is accepting the person as he or she is, it is breaking his or her isolation, it is defusing the situation and it is offering this person the opportunity to express his or her tensions and problems.
The Big Picture
The average number of suicides per year in New Brunswick is 101.
Experts conclude that the average number of those who have attempted is 100 times that amount.
Each of those people have friends, family and acquaintances that are affected.
We can all make a difference.
