2023 Strides Against Suicide Interview
Desert View Family Counseling Services with Rick Quevedo-
May 8, 2023 Interview with Liza Gomez:
Suicide and mental health issues are complex and can touch anyone and any family. Often people feel overwhelmed, helpless, and trapped in a cycle of negative thoughts and emotions.
It is important to understand that suicidal thoughts and behaviors often stem from a combination of factors, including mental illness, trauma, substance abuse, and social isolation. These challenges can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to see a way out. However, it is essential to remember that there is always hope and support available.
By increasing awareness and promoting open and honest conversations about mental health, we can reduce the stigma and create a safe and supportive environment that encourages people to seek help when they need it. Seeking help takes strength and courage, and it is a critical step toward healing.
Annually Desert View Family Counseling Services raises awareness of suicide in our area at “Strides Against Suicide” Candlelight Vigil and 5K Walk & Run. Join Rick Quevedo as he has a conversation with Liza Gomez about suicide and the recent loss of her son RJ.
