suicide help

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Although the rate in Minnesota is low, people are still willing to take their own lives, but there is help out there.

The Southern Minnesota Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention says they are willing to help any people who might be struggling. We spoke to a few of their members Friday morning, including a man who lost his teenage son to suicide. “I think the biggest thing is that they are not alone and that there is folks like us out there that are willing and able to help them,” Brice Currie said. “90% of suicides, 90% of those are diagnosable psychiatric disorders and can have help,” Board Chair of the chapter Kelley Adelsman added.
