Now this is Alarming

We’re always told that when life gives you lemons to simply make lemonade, but things can feel detrimental for those that just can’t find a way to get past the sourness.

That’s when the decision to commit suicide unfortunately comes into play, and many Black men in Denver are doing so at a rapidly increasing rate that can only be described as heartbreaking.


The Denver Postrecently did a report on the issue and dropped some alarming statistics when it comes to the mental health of our brothers in Colorado. Since 2013, the outlet says that suicide amongst Black men in the state has nearly doubled from 10.2 suicides per 100,000 people to 20.2 suicides per 100,000 in 2020. On of the biggest advocators to change that around for the better is Halim Ali, founder of nonprofitFrom the Heart Enterprisesthat works diligently to give young Black men an outlet to reverse trauma or anger that typically leads to feelings of isolation, violence and most importantly suicide.
