Health: PSA addresses suicide in AAPI communitiy




REPRINTED FROM ASAM NEWS


A CATCHY new public service campaign has been released to give a lift to anyone feeling a little down or even depressed.

Launched by motivational speaker, songwriter and TV/Radio host Larissa Lam, "I Feel Alive" features a number of Asian/American celebrities.

The campaign is meant to coincide with Suicide Prevention Month.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among Asian/Americans ages 15 to 34. Each year, 2,500 Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders die of suicide.

Despite its subject, the PSA features an upbeat tune written and performed by Lam.

It is worth both checking out and sharing.
