Promote name people and encouraging people to have a real conversations about mental health suggests. Be open about it should get help if you needed for it to be real about it and also locally there's been a lot of different things happening. I mean this is a time lots of people are starting to talk about suicide and mental illness in this a positive thing. From a you know there's lots of different things happening across the counties in multnomah Washington clock amiss and down Marion County. Wins in a different showings of different films different coalitions getting together to kind of tackled suicide within their own communities and so it's it's time that people.

time. How difficult is it for people to talk about their own mental health . That's a very it's a personal questions Laura for people in it and it varies you know on a scale between. People being.

Some people struggle with it because may be in the past they've reached out to someone and it it didn't go well they weren't receptive to the person they reached out to didn't listen. Terms of that can be challenging for some people say kind of depends on on the person but. The important thing to remember is that everyone has mental health and if we don't talk about it if we don't. You know either call a help line talked to us trusted friend or family member or talked to mental health professional. Your mental health might struggle for that and so that's the important thing is set find someone you trust and talk to them. Please say it's in and there's a such a large scale of of mental health how do you know when it's maybe time for you to reach out. Because everybody has good days and bad insurer share if you think you. If that is it occurs to you in your mind that maybe I should talk to someone that's a sure sign to reach out and it's kind of the same. For people that you know when you work with thirty you're better and your family your friends. That if you sense that something's wrong with them you may not know all the details about mental health or depression are made may be they're even thinking about suicide you don't know that but.
