    Hey guys.

    I am new here! Obviously, haha. However I am not new to suicide. I am 19, and have overcome depression, suicidal thoughts, suicidal attempts, etc. From cutting, to burning, to having a knife in my arm, I have gotten through it. I only want to help others, and that is my focus/goal. I run a YouTube channel in hopes to bring light these topics to those unfamiliar, help those who are familiar, and bring joy and entertainment to those who need it. At my highschool I took part in a class called "Peer Helping" where I gave 300+ student assemblies telling my story and how to overcome these issues. That there is hope. I had the entire school opening up to me, and I was able to give help, among many others, to a countless number of kids.

    I hope to continue helping those in need and thought this forum could be a good place to do so.

    Thanks for taking the time to read.
