Suicide – It’s time to start the conversation
I wanted to attend Toms training because I love helping people, and from past experience, I had a friend who was suicidal where I was the only one who knew. So of course, I freaked out and tried talking to my friend as much as I could, and right away I let his parents know. My friend was very thankful and happy, he pulled me to the side one day at school and said, “You are everybody’s light Gabby, keep being the same person that you are.” Toms training really helped me and had a lot of beneficial information.
