Suicide is a serious public health problem that takes an enormous toll on families, friends, classmates, co-workers, and communities, as well as on our military personnel and veterans. Although, it isn’t always discussed as much as you would think, on Thursday morning, “The Morning Heat” made a point bring attention to suicide, in particular what should you do when you see someone on social media hinting about suicide.
As expected, the question fueled many answers but just in case you missed the opportunity to join the conversation, the Morning Heat left you with this video message and information about suicide prevention.

To lose someone you love is always difficult but for a person you know and care about to take their own life is even more difficult. The ones left behind after a suicide are haunted by questions that can never be answered...and the guilt that perhaps something could have been done to prevent such a tragedy. If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
