Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. In the United States, according to the CDC, suicide is the tenth leading cause of death. In fact, one person dies of suicide every 13.3 minutes. In honor of this day, I’m sharing an an article of mine that was published on the White House’s mental health blog. I wrote about how I lost a friend to suicide at the age of 18, and how it led me to get a diagnosis of bipolar 2. I also talk about what tools I use to maintain my mental health. You can read my article here.
If you are in crisis, please call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or visit www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org.
