In a film about suicide prevention 20 year old Jared Stait told friends that suicide was not the answer. Jared was especially aware of this since 4 of his friends had committed suicide before he reached his senior year, another 2 friends also died.
Last Sunday Jared came home from a party, emailed his girlfriend and then committed suicide by hanging himself. Experts say that anyone who experiences multiple deaths in the way Jared did stands a greater risk of committing suicide.
"It can happen to anyone. There's nobody who is immune to this." said Jared's mother. Jareds family believe he may have suffered a bout of depression brought on by a night of drinking which clouded his judgement. http://www.oregonlive.com/news/oregonian/index.ssf?/base/front_page/10457461589940.xml
