      Your response is the problem with St.Lucia. Choosing to ignore the fact that mental diseases really exist and is and actual problem. Quit being so judgmental and pray for humility so you’re able to help someone who comes to you because they’re depressed and have nowhere or no one else to turn to. This poor kid turned to his mom and she told him to go ahead and drink the poison. At one point she asked why was he taking so long to do it because she was mad at him. It’s time we change our attitudes and become more involved. We need to be parents who talk to our kids about topics that are difficult because they’ll choose other avenues that we’ll regret. When people have difficulty in life don’t brush it off as “vice” or “attention.”

      Then check for the news instead of being appalling with such an unpleasant response to this young man’s death.
