STATES CHRONICLE – There are millions of people who die by suicide every year. This is why the authorities decided to make September the Suicide Prevention Month. A number of events will take place to raise awareness about this problem. Suicide it the second cause of death for the young people in the U.S. Unfortunately, many people give up on their life as they have no hope.
It seems that the rate of suicide has risen and this Suicide Prevention Month is supposed to make people realise more about how important life is and that they are not alone. World Suicide Prevention Day started in 2003 and it helped a lot of people who struggled with mental issues or depression.

Many organizations showed their support.
They are trying to make health issues the main topic and increase access to treatment. There are many people who thought of suicide because they had been through a hard period or they struggled with mental issues. Even though there are so many people who want to help, suicide is still a huge problem for all of us. It can affect you in ways you did not think. The victim of suicide could be one of your friends, a relative. Most times it is a person that smiles all the time and acts like nothing is wrong. All of us should find a solution and be there when someone close to us needs an advice.
If you are interested in finding more details, World Suicide Prevention Day is on September 10th. Moreover, there will be events during the whole month. If you want to talk to somebody about your problems, if you feel like there is no hope, that is the place to go.
Life can be really hard and no one should handle things by himself. Sometimes all you need is a help, is a person who talks with you and understands what you are struggling with. We are hoping that this Suicide Prevention Month will make more people see that life is beautiful.
