Depression and Suicide are not prejudice nor discriminates on age, gender, sexuality, religion, social status or outward appearances. Don’t be focused on looking for obvious physical signs of distress or  expecting to hear the words “help me”

or “I need help” from people in crisis and distress. Some people are afraid of being judged, labeled as crazy, medicated and rejected by society if they say they are depressed and thinking about killing themselves. People are good at masking their pain and distress by using subliminal messages and statements to express their hurt, pain and suffering. However, be concerned if someone you know:
