Suicide is still one of the highest ranked causes of death in Australia
March 6, 2020
Suicide is still one of the highest ranked causes of death in Australia. We have seen and dealt with many families that have lost a loved one, there are not enough words in this world to describe how they would feel.
There are people around us everyday that are suffering
from depression, some that seek help and some that find life just to hard to cope. most people you would not know that they were not well. most people have experienced the external pressures from people saying things like, “just get over it” or ” it’s just in your head” these statements hurt and cause a lot more anxiety. Most people don’t get help and never get medicated, it is not something that just goes away, it is always with them.
Make it part of your day or week to ask if someone is ok, it is then up to them to decide what they say back, but the feeling of being asked gives people a warmth of care and share.
Life is ever so precious. We need to care more about ourselves and others. It has to start with you.
