Today a boy from my childhood took his own life. A boy you would pass in the halls of high school and never notice anything but a grin on his face. He will be sorely missed by many… but he is not alone.

According to the World Health Organization someone takes their own life ever 40 seconds. In Canada, suicide accounts for 24% of deaths among the age group 15-24 and is the second leading cause of death for people aged 10-24. For many this is just a statistic… for many it is a brother, a sister, a lover, a friend. 

Mental Health is a serious issue plaguing our generation. You can never truly understand, but you can educate yourself,
