“You are not alone!”

Meet 18-year-old Paige Hunter. She is a student at East Durham College in the north east of England. This young lady has been given a commendation certificate from Northumbria Police for helping to save six lives. How did she do it? It’s a really awesome story!

Paige found an innovative way to stop people from committing suicides. In her hometown, there is a bridge, from which a number of people have fallen to their death. The smart girl decided to change the sad statistics.

Paige started attaching inspirational messages to the bridge. She wrote more than 40 notes by this time.

Hunter’s messages are aimed to help people who are going through the dark times and make them feel worth living. Here are some of her notes:

You’re not alone!

When I felt like you did, I called for help. It has to be worth a try, yeah?

Positive feedback

Paige was surprised to find out that her ‘magic’ notes helped save six lives. One person among these six rescues even wrote an anonymous feedback on Facebook to thank Paige for her inspirational message. She wrote:

Depression is a hard thing to deal with, and I felt so alone that I went to Wearmouth bridge. All I needed was somebody to tell me it was going to be ok…That was my kids, that's why I keep fighting every day to see them grow, and Paige Hunter. If it was not for you and what you did, my boys would have had no one.

Suicide prevention

Sadly, the number of suicides has risen dramatically in the recent decades, even among children. In most cases, suicides are caused by depression and the feeling of loneliness.

Here are some important rules to prevent a tragedy until it’s too late:

1. Don’t keep negative thoughts to yourself. Find someone to talk about your fears and worries.

2. Be socially active. Do not stay alone with your dark thoughts.

3. Set little goals on a daily basis. Make your goal something that you can succeed at.

4. Encourage positive lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet and good sleep.

5. Do not neglect to inquire professional help. Remember, there is nothing here to be ashamed of.
