The Bridge Between Suicide and Life

The Family Center wishes to share a powerful message about suicide that is presented in this very special TED Talk. See the Video here >

From TED: "For many years Sergeant Kevin Briggs had a dark, unusual, at times strangely rewarding job: He patrolled the southern end of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, a popular site for suicide attempts. In a sobering, deeply personal talk Briggs shares stories from those he’s spoken - and listened - to standing on the edge of life.

He gives a powerful piece of advice to those with loved ones who might be contemplating suicide."
