A 17 year old student from Eastern Hills High School committed suicide. As a community we must continue to end the stigma of suicide. #suicideprevention #runforlife2014 #suicideawareness #hope 

"It is so sad! I hope folks will reach out to the family to show their support and love, and help to chip away at the stigma of suicide. I hope that children and adults will seek help and know that they can reach out to friends, family, educators and coworkers instead of feeling "ashamed." My heart hurts for that girl, her family, and everyone that was touched by this."- Brenda Rios 


Eastern Hills student killed after jumping off bridge, officials say http://www.star-telegram.com/2014/08/27/6072090/woman-killed-after-jumping-from.html (at Eastern Hills High School)

This weekend I had a conversation with a great friend that was very honest with me about her perception of mental illness and suicide, she didn’t understand why so much importance was evolved on ‪#‎RobinWilliams‬ death until she read my post explaining that mental health illness is a medical condition. She didn’t realize the validity of this, but reaching out to her & educating the severity of mental health illness and the stigma that surrounds it change her perception. As the subject was brought up in her place of employment she was able to share my story to her co-workers. She thank me and said she will never mind the amount of info I post on her newsfeed because education is important, and our community needs to be informed about mental health just as much as its informed about any other medical disease. I’m glad to know that she’s able to share my story and will join us on 9-6-14 to continue helping others and keep breaking the stigma of Suicide.
