National Suicide Prevention

I remember the day my mother killed herself. I was a senior in college, studying for my final exams. When my father knocked on my apartment door and told me of my mother’s death, the pain seared. That day changed my life forever. For months, I walked around in a fog. For nearly 40 years, I’ve wished she could have envisioned an alternative to death. –Rachel Pruchno, PhD
