THE RIPPLE EFFECT OF SUICIDE SUPPORT
THE RIPPLE EFFECT MEANS: 1) A situation in which one event produces effects which spread and produce further effects. With suicide, it is like a pebble in a pond, the waves ripple outward. The reach of the pebble’s wave is much greater than the size of the pebble itself. Ultimately, in the way that a pond is changed because of the pebble, an entire community can be changed by a suicide, and it can have a devastating impact and cause major-life disruption. This ripple effect can change everything that comes after it. If this is happening to someone in your life, let them know they are safe and supported.
