West Frankfort Mother Raising Awareness About Suicide


By WSIL Manager

WEST FRANKFORT -- Suicide is the third leading cause of death for people between the ages of 10 and 24.  A West Frankfort mother who lost her son to suicide is helping shed light on the situation.

Dr. Joyce Griffin is getting the word out about the Races for Life.  It's set for Saturday, July 19 at the West Frankfort Aquatic Center.

The group wants to honor people who have taken their own life.  Contact Joyce by clicking here if you'd like to participate.  You can learn more about Chad's Coalition online as well.
