Connie and Fish TV – Mental Health And Suicide Prevention
UPDATE: Today we received a call from her mother to tell us that she was OK. Thanks to listeners sharing the story on social media, her mother was able to determine that it was her daughter who placed the call.
Yesterday on the show we had a middle schooler reach out to the show to tell us that she was having suicidal thoughts and was contemplating taking her life. Before we could get any information she hung up the phone. After calling the police we tried to get her to call back with no luck, but we had listeners from all over call urging her to seek out help and to tell their own stories.
Included in this video are some of the calls we received from listeners. Thank you to everyone who shared their stories.
