The Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention Centre of British Columbia is a volunteer driven organization committed to helping people help themselves and others deal with crisis. Do you know of anyone that needs it? Recently an associate shared a story with me that her son was failing in school and was withdrawn from the family. He spoke about suicide and wrote a letter as well. Are you watching for signals? Sometimes they don’t even talk about suicide.
