WELCOME TO HEARTS
Educate adolescents and parents about suicide prevention in order to empower them to use their voice to save a life.
What is Suicide?
Suicide is the result of actions taken to deal with emotional anguish and pain, fear or despair that overwhelms an individual’s value for living and hope in life.
While there is a well-established link between suicide and depression, each suicide occurs in a unique mix of complex interconnected factors: individual, environmental, biological, psychological, social, cultural, historical, political and spiritual, including psychological trauma.
Risk Factors to be on the look out for: Depression, mood disorders, history of physical or sexual abuse, being a victim of bullying, confusion about sexual orientation, drug/alcohol abuse, history of suicide in family, and major life change such as: parents getting a divorce, teen pregnancy, loss of a loved one.
We are a faith based organization that promotes suicide awareness within the community. Our goal is to challenge the school systems and the parents to decrease the stigmatization of suicide.
