On a gloomy night, a few dozen in Cleveland battled the rain to talk about a growing problem in this country and the State of Ohio: depression.
“I am a suicide survivor from 2016,” Moussa Saliba says. “They didn’t think I was going to make it – I did.”
He is taking part in National Suicide Prevention Week.
In Ohio alone, the number of suicides in recent years is up 30-37%. according to the Department of Disease Control and Prevention.
“It’s an uphill battle, Saliba says. “Sometimes it’s an all-out war. If you make it through the battle, you can win the war.”
