NSPM Writing Submission - Sofia O.
Submission by Sofia O.
I have lost several friends to suicide. Some were online friends and one in person. Each suicide was hard. The pain never goes away. People always say, "it'll get better, time heals all wounds." But in fact time makes it harder. This is why we need to fight the stigma surrounding mental health and spread awareness in any way possible. In case you haven't been told this today: "you are important. You are loved. You are stronger than those inner demons."
