No civilized country should stand for this

The Guardian reports that in one Western nation the most common form of death for a particular group of people up to the age of 44 is suicide.

“The text said my cousin Gabe had died – he had committed suicide that morning. I just went numb. Here I was giving a speech about the detrimental impact suicide had on our communities – and in the cruellest irony, my cousin had taken his life that morning.”

This was not the first time suicide had impacted Wilson’s family.

This absolutely cannot continue.
