CreationZ From A Dove Host Suicide Awareness Event

SUIC

On Friday September 25th, 2015 ,CreationZ From A Dove hosted its first suicide awareness event. Suicide is one of those taboo topics that many deal with, but are afraid to talk about because of fear of being judged. The event featured various speakers, who either had suicidal thoughts, or dealt with suicide within their friends or family,  who each took the mic to tell their story of dealing with such a heavy issue. Many people dealt with depression, judgement, domestic violence, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, and other issues, that initially caused them to get to such a low point, but thankfully with the help of God, they overcame their issues.
