(Houston, TX) – Author Cheron K. Griffin knows that suicide is a national public health issue in the U.S.A, so she wrote the book, I SEE YOU: Igniting Hope & Preventing Suicide using emojis, hoping it would be easier to look at pictures versus reading a bunch of words when suicide thoughts are heavy on the mind.
The holidays are approaching, suicide is a topic that most people would prefer to avoid, however it’s happening all around us and there is no better time than now.
Suicide is no respecter of person; more children are committing suicide due to bullying and other ills of society. Adults are committing suicide due to the pressures of life such as finances, family pressure, workplace bullying, mental health, and other reasons. I SEE YOU was created with emojis that we all can relate to. It’s for children, youth, those in the military, the LBGTQ community, the elderly, and everyday people. The moral of I SEE YOU is to reiterate to every reader is “I see you and you are loved.” The “I SEE YOU” campaign sole purpose is to spread happiness.
Suicide is rarely caused by a single factor. Although suicide prevention efforts largely focus on identifying and providing treatment for people with mental health conditions, there are many additional opportunities for prevention.
A movement by Grow A Girls Network Inc., her entrepreneurial brainchild, to delve into the lives of suicide victims’ families and dredge-up efficacious methods to keep suicide-oriented thoughts at bay.
Cheron K. Griffin has propelled into existence her suicide prevention campaign “I See You”. This book was written for people whose depression has left them feeling unloved and hopeless. Throughout the text, the narrator tells the reader, “You are seen and loved.” Written with the help of emojis, the book provides comfort for people feeling lonely, different, or broken-hearted. When the struggles on the inside seem insurmountable, it is okay to seek out help from a therapist, loved one, or spiritual leader. The book ends with a warning that if their depression has left them in an emergency, it is important to call for help, the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is provided along with a reminder to the reader that they are loved and seen.”
