LIPF.org was created after a very beloved friend of mine, David V Price, lost his battle
With his condition this past fall on 15-Oct-2011, he was 31 years old.
This is something we believe could have been avoided.
Suicide is the leading cause of death among teenagers and adults under 35. There are an
estimated 18-20 million non-fatal attempted suicides every year worldwide.
More steps can be taken to help those in need before an attempt is ever made and before an attempt is ever successful.
If we can even save one person’s life, then perhaps
David’s sacrifice will provide some justification to his pre-mature death.
There is an increased need for more effective screening and
treatment of depression and it is through the growth of our trust that we will award grants for the
research, treatment of depression and suicide. www.lipf.org
Unfortunately these conditions are often times ignored and disregarded.
