We start asking “WHY” at two years old and never stop. Throughout life we question our feelings, our reactions, our purpose, and life in general. When it comes to mental health, especially while someone is waiting for a diagnosis, there are even more whys: Why am I different than everyone else? Why can’t I do the same things? Why do I feel this way?
After a diagnosis there are still whys.
When someone takes their life those who remain behind are left asking many more whys: Why didn’t I know? Why didn’t they ask for my help? Why them? Why am I still here without them? Why did they do it?
Through Launch2Life, we know that we won’t be able to answer all of the “whys” about suicide but we hope to understand more of the answers that will start conversations and drive action to ultimately prevent suicides among our younger generation.
