Following is a powerful interview and post with/by a Mormon man who attempted suicide at the age of 20. In the interview, his parents share some thoughts about their son’s depression and suicide attempt as well. This story could be helpful for someone who is working to heal after a suicide attempt, or for loved ones struggling after a loved one’s suicide attempt (or the grief of a suicide of a loved one).

This is was a great video on the topic of suicide. We are finding on our Inner City Mission that mental illness is very prevalent and with that comes increased suicide attempts. This program was well done.
