A college student recently called the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK), and one of Family Service Association of Bucks County’s volunteer listeners answered the phone. The caller told the listener that he had been thinking about suicide for a while now and, just the night before, he had sat on a bridge contemplating whether or not to jump off.
The caller said he had contacted the student health center to make a therapy appointment, but the earliest appointment he could get was a few weeks away. With the student’s permission, Family Service’s volunteer listener called the student health center and informed the staff of the caller’s thoughts of suicide and experience on the bridge. The student health center took this very seriously and requested that the caller come in immediately.

A streamlined dive was second nature to the competitive swimmer, lifeguard and water polo player, yet ironically she became another victim to a preventable, life-altering injury. Paralyzed as a quadriplegic, from the chest down, she’s been given a 1% chance of ever walking again.
But paralysis robs one of much more than the inability to be ambulatory; some vital internal organs also suffer and cannot function on their own.
