In honor of it being Mental health month I wanted to dedicate a personal post to my best friend Ian. Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of losing him to suicide. Ian suffered from depression and thought there was no way out. If you or someone you know is suffering from mental illness and may be suicidal I encourage you to please call the crisis helpline at 1-800-273-TALK . Your life matters just like Ian’s did. Please share and repost to spread the word. You’ll always be in our hearts Ian ❤
That suicide chatline is affiliated with a homophobic organization. A better alternative is the Lifeline Crisis Chat. I'm pretty sure, at least.
