One of the hardest things for us to understand is the feeling of being suicidal.
We all know that life has its ups and downs and that we will go through struggles in our lives, but most people will never seriously contemplate taking their own life, and it is very difficult to understand people that do. Often, it is talked about as ‘weak’, ‘selfish’ or a ‘coward’s way out’.
It is important that we talk about this issue and challenge these assumptions so that people that feel suicidal are able to seek help, without feeling shame or judgement.
I hope that this short video can go some way towards helping raise awareness.
