CFCC students raise awareness about suicide prevention

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Students in the CFCC Psychology Club were out on the street today to raise awareness for suicide prevention.

Each student held a sign with a statistic or fact. One stated that in the past 45 years, suicide rates have increased by 60 percent worldwide.

The chain of students say they just want to get people talking.

"We just want to get people aware of different facts and statistics just to get the topic out there because a lot of people avoid it, and we don't want people to avoid it," Jade McClendis said. "We want it to be a topic of discussion, because that's a lot of the reason why people commit suicide, because nobody's talking about it."

September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.
