Anxiety and depression are something I've wrestled with, increasingly so in recent years. But I know I'm not alone.
Hunter Hayes' new song "Dear God" reminded me of this and I hope it will give you some comfort as well if you are experiencing the same feelings.
This is National Suicide Prevention Week. Although suicide has been in the national spotlight in recent months with the high profile deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, it's something that's affected most of us. I know at least two people who have taken their own life and I'm sure you've been touched by this tragic act, too. The hurt spans across more than a week. It lasts a lifetime.
Hunter has teamed up with To Write Love On Her Arms to communicate the message that #TomorrowNeedsYou.
1-800-273-8255 is the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
Be a friend. That's one of the most important things you could do for someone.
