Articles Tagged ‘suicide hotlines’
I wanted to thank the Long Island Press for its extensive and comprehensive article “Calling for Help” in your June 16 issue. We felt the article did an excellent job of raising awareness about the stigmatized issues of suicide, depression, and self-injury. People suffering from depression and suicidal ideation need to know that they are not alone and where to seek help. A comprehensive list of resources was given. In addition, the accessibility and sincere caring offered by hotline counselors was well described. I’m sure the article will be a godsend for many in our Long Island community.
