#18 Mitchell’s mom posted a story about him on Facebook today. She shared his photo and his story and asked for support in the form of a donation to a cause she hopes will provide others with a different outcome. I’m seeing a lot of people who are already being harmed by the escalation in hate crimes. Fear exacerbates anxiety and depression and for someone who is on the edge, suicide can look like a better option. So today we’re donating to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Action you can take: Watch, listen and be aware of the stresses on your friends. Learn the Warning Signs and Risk Factors. Make a donation to a prevention organization.
