Such behavior can hurt feeling, cause depression, and even lead to suicide. Give it a try and feel free to share your experiences or thoughts on this topic.

Suicide Prevention

In 2012, our son, Joshua, died by suicide (see joshuascottdavis.org), and we know that so many people around the world have known family or friends who have ended their lives. To provide help and open discussion, I created listening activity (Suicide Prevention). Feel to share your thoughts and comments on these questions:

  • What are some of the reasons why people consider taking their own lives? 
  • What are some warning signs of suicide?
  • What are three things friends and family can do to help someone who might are thinking about suicide?
