If someone decides to end their own life, you may never fully understand why. "But you can imagine how much psychological pain that person had to be in," says Pat Gallinagh of Range Suicide Prevention Council. But it doesn't have to end that way.
Suicide can be prevented. Talking is where it starts.
"Say, 'yeah we see you’re hurting, you’re in a lot of pain' -- and let them know that help is available."
Hear Air1's Becky Hansen talks with Gallinagh about suicide warning signs, help and hope.
