The audacity to live life despite adversity
Suicide is never the solution (Enough is Enough)
Empowerment of the individual at all times.
Suicide can be addressed through individual actions, education, resilience and empowerment. An absolute refusal to ever give-in to the ultimate decision.
Suicide should never be a solution to life’s problems. Every life has meaning, value and purpose.
Resilience is the new wave for individual survival.
Mate to Mate is the encouragement of the individual to problem solve (with the right tools) to develop their own solutions; drawing on individual capacities such as personality, previous history, willpower, honesty, intellect and emotions.
In conjunction with the medical profession if required, an individual must develop their own personal resilience. The individual must develop their own tools for survival. Resilience is the presence of mind to accept the situation and take action.
