#Suicide is one of the leading causes of death among #whitemales in the United States.

The #NationalInstituteofHealth estimates that #suicides are responsible for twice as many deaths as #homicides in the country.

Half the people that commit #suicide have no known #mentalhealth condition because #depression often goes undiagnosed, making those most susceptible to #suicide not easy to suspect.

#JamesDonaldson notes:

Welcome to the “next chapter” of my life… being a voice and an advocate for #mentalhealthawarenessandsuicideprevention, especially pertaining to our younger generation of students and student-athletes.

Getting men to speak up and reach out for help and assistance is one of my passions. Us men need to not suffer in silence or drown our sorrows in alcohol, hang out at bars and strip joints, or get involved with drug use.

Having gone through a recent bout of #depression and #suicidalthoughts myself, I realize now, that I can make a huge difference in the lives of so many by sharing my story, and by sharing various resources I come across as I work in this space.  #http://bit.ly/JamesMentalHealthArticle
