On Robin Williams’ suicide and preventing suicide in Georgia
By Ann Wilder, M.S., M.B.A.
We often say, “life is worth living,” but to a person filled with feelings of despair, hopelessness, or regret, these are hollow words. Many kinds of emotional and physical pain can lead to thoughts of suicide. Approximately 1,100 Georgia families are impacted by a completed suicide each year and many more impacted by suicide attempts. In the darkest moments, a person can often feel as though the pain and unhappiness is permanent, no solution will ever come, and no change is possible.
