Many people struggle with depression, and it can often lead to unfortunate outcomes if not handled and dealt with properly. Too many times when people get depressed, they feel they can't talk about it and isolate themselves until they deal with it themselves, unfortunately, leading to suicide. This is a tragic end to anybody's life and is a cause of death that needs to come down. A local group in Twin Falls will be holding a special event this spring to raise awareness for suicide prevention and will unite the community as well.
