Welcome Everyone!!! Today we will be discussing Suicide Awareness Month. Alot of times when we think of Suicide we think of people whom are depressed, on drugs, etc. But recently over the past few years we have seen More and More Suicides take place with our Youth. The reasons for this ranges from their being issues of bullying, depression, and unstable households. Also beside the youth a large number of Military Veterans are also taking their lives, due to PTSD ( Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and not being able to cope with normal every day things due to being in war zones, and being traumatized. Alot of Military find it hard to function, and most are not up to seeking out professional counseling for these issues. Today we discuss this and More!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.
