Pillar talks about Suicide Awareness Month

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - Suicide is a very serious issue that isn’t talked about, but it’s an issue that has been seen a lot these days.

Many people usually see suicide as the only way to escape their trauma or stress that they are going through.

September is designated to bring awareness to suicide in our community and how to prevent them.

Myrthala Alejo from Pillar explains that there has been an increase in suicide among children and adults not just around the community but around the U.S.

The most important thing to remember if you have experienced trauma is that you are not alone and you can seek help.

If you or someone you know would like to seek help you can contact Pillar at 956-723-7457.
