  1. I believe that when we raise our children knowing God and building a strong relationship with him, then they have hope which comes from God. This country is in a mess. Only when we learn to pray, seek God and turn from our wicked ways, then we will see a difference.

  2. There’s Something Which was Really Hurting this Young Boy thats why he Took his Life .There are Some Parents Men and Women in St.Lucia who have Kids for all Dirty Charàctors who Don’t take care of tgeir Kids. Its time the Family Court upgrade Child Màintenance fee to $500 per child .A percentage of men in St Lucia have kids with women and tgey wants other men yo take care of their kids

  3. It breaks a mothers’ heart to see her son suffer, no help she can afford, fearful of son’s reaction for speaking to others about his ills. Its only a small community and you know how that is; but there are other communities, someone else needs help, girls may chose other devices and other ways. Its all over the world – Lord have mercy on the poor.

  4. Sad to read the young guy chose this exit. He probably felt that there was no hope. Whatever despair that one is experiencing, please remember never give up. This was a message an elderly man gave me years ago. I have kept it since and it has served me well in many ways. RIP.

  5. wow – a mental health crisis has existed in St. Lucia for decades and needs to be addressed right away. Folk are afraid to seek help because of the stigma and the abuse that comes with it. Mental health issues should be treated like any other illness.
