Re: Depression & suicide too taboo?

The topic isn't as important as the way you write about it. If it does a good job of expressing who you are I would go for it.

I think this is a great topic, especially since the experience has changed you and that change is not just internal but evident in your actions. And I think that's very sensible of you, avoiding any sympathetic language regarding your mother and family-difficulties.

Post it or PM me, if you would like. I think that your topic could be particularly strong because it shows that you have emerged from a atypical background, and in my opinion, one that you had to find your own success in spite of. You obviously have learned some pretty serious life lessons as well, if you are volunteering as someone who helps suicide/depression persons. From what I imagine could be done with a topic such as yours, I really like it.
