This article by mentalhealthfirstaid.com teaches you how to recognize the signs of someone who may be suicidal and how to approach the subject https://www.mentalhealthfirstaid.org/2018/12/how-to-help-someone-who-is-suicidal/


I hope we can do our part to reduce this leading cause of death in the United States.


We understand the stress that can come from starting a business, starting over, and managing the mental health challenges that can result in these areas.
