Suicide affects hundreds of thousands of lives across the world. Mental health is not something that should be taken lightly, since every life is precious. Nearly 800,000 people die due to suicide every year, making it the second leading cause of death of 15-29 year olds (World Health Organization).
Recently, the Smash Bros. and Nintendo community lost a prominent figure, Desmond "Etika" Amofah. In light of his death, we are launching a charity campaign to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. AFSP "is the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide."
