Coach Benson's Page: When Simply Being a Friend is NOT Enough

In the first episode of this week, Coach Benson Fox, a young Jewish coach with wisdom far beyond his age!  I am so proud of this young man and his insights. He talks candidly about the who, the why, and the what of suicide victims.  A former suicide text line volunteer, he talks about his personal experience doing this, and paints a picture of how:  Hopelessness + Emotional pain = Suicide! Find out the one thing he suggests actively suicidal victims can do to help get them out of the mindset right away... Also, find out the  4 things he says suicide hotline volunteers focus on for each call they make. And also find out why he agrees that hospitalization is NOT always the answer.
