Suicide Prevention SMORE

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (ASFP) was founded to help find better ways to prevent suicide, create a society that prioritizes mental health, and bring hope to people affected by suicide. Suicide is prominent in not just youth. Suicide is the 10th leading killer in the United States. This non-profit charity wants to raise awareness, bring support to those who have attempted suicide, and give help to people who are having suicidal thoughts.

a close family member

A close family member of mine was hurt the most upon his mother's death. No one knew very well what was going on with him. All appeared to be going well. He was fifty six, married, had a son, and a successful carrier. Everything seemed to be going well on the outside, but it was not. There are more resources to help people through the problems that they go through.
