September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and Tom Green County’s suicide rate is well above statewide numbers. But there are groups coming together to grieve and try and make a difference.
In their honor, we’re talking with folks who have lost loved ones — including Jana Anderson, who lost her 22-year-old son.
Her message to other parents: don’t ever think it couldn’t happen to your child.
“It can happen to anyone. It’s not just kids who — you know, there are a lot of young people, especially now, who are confused and unhappy. And our world is just different than it was when I was a child,” Anderson said.
Make sure to watch KIDY tonight to catch our full conversation with Anderson — and learn what she and fellow parents are doing this month to help others.
