About 35 teens commit suicide in BC every year. This is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of mental health dysfunction with 12% of mainstream BC youth contemplating suicide as an option to their pain and 5% attempting.
For the second year in a row we chose NEED2 as our charity sponsor.
NEED2 works every day to actively prevent suicide through an online portal for youth in crisis (Youthspace.ca) and through presentations in the schools. We run up against the stigma surrounding suicide so frequently we want to make a noise about it and shake things up.
Thank you for making some LOTS of noise and helping NEED2 raise funds for a very important cause.
