Who We Are

Who We Are

  On June 11, 2002, my dad walked into my home and said "you have to see this, suicide is the
  leading cause of death of college students!"  I said, "dad, now is not the time for this we must
  get ready to go to the funeral home. He replied, "you don't understand, there are over 30,000
  suicide deaths in the US each year and why aren't we doing something about it?"

  Much of that day, the day before when we had learned that Nathan had died by suicide in
  his dorm room and many of the days that followed are blurs. I do however remember my
  dad coming into my home with all the unbelievable suicide statistics and our church filled
  with  Nathan's college basketball team mates, his class mates, his friends and his family
  and all asking the same question,  why?

  Since Nathan's death we have learned a lot about Mental Health. We have learned:     

  + depression that goes untreated can kill you

  + suicide deaths are preventable

  + an average of 1,100 college students die by suicide each year, the majority of whom were
     not receiving treatment for a mental disorder

  + that more teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from all medical illnesses
     combined

  + people working in Health care need our support in fighting this disease. Most have had
      NO training is suicide prevention.

  + That my father inlaw was right that day, that we each can do something to help prevent
      suicide deaths!
