Suicide prevention

 

Strangely, the coming of spring and return of light in Alaska doesn’t clear the darkness for some people. Suicide statistics get worse this time of year. On the next Hometown Alaska, we’ll meet Alaskans who are trying to lift that darkness, and to help the rest learn to protect our friends and loved ones from the terrible mistake of suicide.
