Children are hurting and we all must help

Brandon Chambers was hurting, and had been for months. He and his family sought help and got it — from counseling to medication — and it still wasn’t enough to keep the Elizabethtown 14-year-old from taking his own life last month. His pain was deep and one afternoon, it became too much for him. He made an unfortunate and irreversible choice. Some children hurt more than others and some children can’t hide the hurt. Others are masterful at it. From self-harming themselves to easing the pain with illegal substances, children around the country are dealing with depression as they face challenges like never before.
