An increase in the rate of suicides around the holidays is unfortunate myth, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In fact, the month of December actually boasts the lowest rate of suicides for the entire year.
It seems that the media has perpetuated this holiday suicide myth, according to The Annenberg Public Policy Center. Researchers from the center analyzed articles over the last 10 years and found that 40% of the articles continued to report the incorrect myth, even though national statistics clearly show the opposite trend.
It is important to remember that while suicide rates may be lower during the holiday months, suicides in children still occur. If you believe that your child is suicidal or thinking about harming herself, it is important to seek immediate treatment.

Many people are dealing with depression and suicide. There are many reasons why people want to commit suicide. Some of it is because of issues which seem unbearable to deal with. Some are because issues that may never be known.
Unfortunately, many who suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts succeed in taking their lives. They have made "cries of help", to no avail. Some have taken their lives because they don't want to deal with the despondency any longer and feel that there is no hope, nor will there ever be.
This evening we want to specifically talk about depression and suicide as it relates to a video of a young woman videotaping her "suicide". This young woman was despondent because her boyfriend had been cheating on her and she felt like he didn't want her anymore. Also, she was upset because she was the darkest memeber of her family and people, including her very own family, teased her and made fun of the color of her skin, She couldn't take it anymore so she took several bottles of pill, using Nyquil as the liquid to wash down the pills.
Please call in to this open forum broadcast and LET'S TALK ABOUT IT!
Suicide does not discriminated it harrasses all people of all walks of life. Today the Mega Churches especially give that "good feeling sermon" instead of the sermon that KILLS THE DEVILS SCHEMES AND PLANS AGAINST THE REMENANTS. IF you ever get the thoughts of Suicide you must listen to this segment and hear the truth so you can get set free. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE, according to history but today FREEDOM FROM THE DEVIL IS FREE. Tune into this segment and hear what the Lord has to say and what the word of God says about sucide, anxiety and depression.

Feeling down or depressed from time to time happens to most people. Usually such feelings pass, and a person can improve his or her mood naturally. However, some people cannot break out of a depressed state over an extended period of time. In those cases, a person is considered to have clinical depression. However, there is much research that shows that depression is neurological, not psychological. Certain brain patterns are frequently linked to depression.
Please join Health Educator & Life Coach, Erica Haray-Butcher, as she chats with Psychiatrist & Life Coach, Dr. Karen Hammers, on depression, suicide, and mental health.

About the Tour.
SISFI is hosting our Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour on Sept. 17th - Oct 3rd across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs and resources to address the increasing numbers of people facing serious life and emotional challenges, and human suffering with suicide ideations/thoughts, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide.
The theme of the tour is “Look into my heart and mind, tell me what you see”. It highlights the realities of not knowing what’s in a person’s mind or on their heart by what we see on the outside, and that we must engage in dialog and allow an open and comfortable atmosphere for people to open up and express themselves. The workshops and radio shows of the tour are scheduled at different times every day across the 3 cities.
We have aligned 15 community workshops, 3 luncheons and 15 radio shows to bring people, mental health professionals, energy therapists, health professionals, survivors and healers together to address this very serious and important topic affecting many people in our communities. While the community workshops are local in the 3 cities, the radio shows will have guests from across the country who lost loved ones, and practitioners who specializes in the support, treatment, recovery and healing of mental health, life coaching, emotional wellness and human suffering.
For full schedule of the tour check the website http://sisfi.org/suicidetours.html.

The spirit of depression is like an emotional cloak of hopelessness fueled by real and/or perceived factors. Without hope for tomorrow, one can be driven to almost anything; from reckless behavior/decisions to suicide. Often there are no external symptoms so it may be that friend, family-member or coworker you see every day that's suffering. Pray for and care for one another. Your words of concern or lack thereof could mean the difference between giving up and pressing on! I know from personal experience that a small word of concern can be a piercing ray of sunshine through dark times. Smiles, like beauty, may only be skin deep. So be liberal in your distribution of healing words!
