Mental Health is an issue affecting all socio-economic groups. The fact is our current society; mental health is an issue not often talked about as it is taboo and is "less pressing" than other issues. However, every single person living in the USA knows at least one person who is suffering from a mental illness.

More people are increasingly becoming intimately affected by the loss of a loved one to suicide, and more people are being exposed to this epidemic without insight into how to help those left behind. We need to not only help families who have lost someone to suicide but also those who have had someone close to them attempt.

atleast teen deaths occur weekly due to completed suicide. 

With over 20% of 10th graders seriously thinking about attempting suicide, it is a very prevalent issue in the minds of our young people. In just 2014, 1,111 people died by suicide in the state of Washington. With the state seeing more and more cases every year, the problem seems to be getting worse continually.
