Come out to fellowship, be inspired and get support at the 4th Annual Suicide Awareness event presented by the Arthur Lee Tutson Youth Fraternity. The first method of suicide prevention is communication. Now more than ever we need to start the dialog with family and friends and make sure the doors of communication are open. Let our loved ones know that suicide is NEVER an alternative.

Depression, bullying, family hardships, drug addiction, alcoholism and mental illness are all precursors to suicide. Know the signs and be proactive by attending events like this, so that you can understand helps and resources are available. This is for the families of people who've committed suicide as well. Find comfort, support and fellowship with people who know what your going through. If you are struggling emotionally and need support call the 24-hr Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255, there is always someone available to listen to you and help you get the help you need. You are important.
