Are you or a loved one contemplating suicide?

August 19th, 2019 | Posted by jameswatkins in Uncategorized

Last week, two New York City police officers committed suicide: one 56 years old and another only 35. In fact, more officers take their own lives than die in the line of duty.

While these two tragedies made national news, the World Health Organization estimates that one million people in the general population worldwide die each year of suicide. That’s one death every 20 seconds. Twenty-five times that number attempt suicide every year. I’ve had my own thoughts while driving past a cemetery of “Lucky stiffs!” as I deal with clinical depression.

So, here are some posts I trust are helpful if you or a loved one are dealing with suicidal thoughts.
