HISTORY HUSTLE Chad Varah, a priest, saw a funeral for a 14- year-old girl who committed suicide after having no one to talk to when her first period came, believing it was an STD. He recalled thinking, "little girl, I never knew you, but promise you that you have changed my life". He vowed to encourage sex education, and to help people who were contemplating suicide. In 1953, Varah founded the world's first cuicide hotline.
It IS not the way: SUICIDE PREVENTION 1-800-273-TALK org . Every 16 minutes someone commits suicide . Suicide is the 11th leading cause of death in the United States Depression is the leading cause of suicide
Can you give some examples of women's room graffiti? It sounds interesting I found a stall on a college campus with a suicide watch hotline, a domestic abuse hotline, and a phone number for a women's shelter in the city. In assorted colors and handwritings all over the stall were messages like "asking for help is the strongest thing you can do"
