Suicide is a silent killer that creeps up on an individual, its the biggest killer of men under the age of 40 and latest studies report that 84 men die every week from suicide.

Suicide illness is the single ONLY disease that is open season for judgement, shame and condemnation. 

Suicide illness is the ONLY disease for which our culture expects grieving loved ones to feel the burden of guilt and shame on top of anguish. Suicide illness is the ONLY disease for which the victims are regarded as perpetrators of a crime. Sufferers of suicide illness are often the brightest, smartest, kindest, most creative and loving people in the world. And tragically their deep capacity for love enables their great ability to hide their suffering. This well intentioned component increases their isolation which feeds their illness until it overtakes and kills them. They die from a cruel illness that reached the terminal stage. 

Victims of suicide illness feel ashamed and afraid and unable to reach out for help. In providing a roadmap towards support and services, Facebook and other forums are helping to change the cultural climate that makes people in complete agony feel that they must hide it and fight alone.

 Please help us raise awareness and eradicate the stigma!
