Cori said the feeling of togetherness at the walk is special.

The DHS's "Division of Mental Health Services, under Gov. (Chris) Christie's leadership, has made suicide prevention one of its top priorities, using a multifaceted and multi-departmental approach aimed at saving people's lives", spokesperson Ellen Lovejoy said.

"We realised government underfunding meant there were huge gaps in what safe and adequate mental health services were available and it wasn't just our family falling through the gaps".

BCUHB also host dedicated Dementia and Drug & Alcohol helplines which together with the CALL Mental Health Helpline receive nearly 30,000 enquiries every year.

I then experienced my own mental health problems resulting in attempting to take my life in my early 20s, and then previous year a good friend killed herself after suffering post-natal depression.

There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about suicide and the Ask About Suicide online campaign aims to replace these with facts and practical information for anyone who has concerns that a loved one, colleague, friend, neighbour or even customer may be considering suicide. There are also psychosocial issues, especially as a result of war and other calamities that have taken place in the country. The reasons for and the process of the suicide are not the same. "We have more needs than providers". Some had lost several friends or family members to suicide. "Now it's just better, because you can just walk in and talk to someone, and they're professionals".

Nivendra also shared some advice on listening without judgement. After consultation, we realised she was emotionally affected when her boyfriend left her for someone else'.

Wherever you are, you can ask clinical psychologists your questions for free between 1pm and 2pm, and again from 7pm to 8pm. They can be dispatched by calling "211 First Call for Help". Also, sudden mood switch from being very sad to being very calm or appearing to be happy, putting affairs in order, tying up loose ends like changing a will should also not be ignored. It's important, she said, that people get the help they need early on so that they don't dwell on feelings of despair.

If you know someone who is visibly depressed or struggling to cope with challenges of life, do not hesitate to intervene for fear of making things worse.

Dr Cole-King is considered to be a leading authority on suicide and self-harm prevention and was recently named as one of the most influential women in medicine by the respected Medical Women's Journal.
