The holiday season is beginning. And this time of year we can see a lot of people celebrating. But, while many people make merry there are those that struggle emotionally during this time of the year. We see more cases of people struggling with depression.
Yet, the worse thing we see is the suicide rate go up. Yes, for many people the holidays are not days of merriment. For many people the holidays carry many bad memories for different reasons.
Let me encourage you to be alert! Pay attention to people and if you begin to see someone experiencing depression or threatening suicide, get them help as quickly as possible. Suicide in children and teens is escalating at an unbelievable rate.
