University of Cincinnati students are mourning the loss of Brogan Dulle after a weeklong search.
Michelle Bauer from Mental Health America of Northern Kentucky & Southwest Ohio and Joe Lynch who lost his son to suicide joined us on Wednesday's The Xtra to give tips on suicide prevention.
Lynch said that he may never understand why his son Andrew took his life. Andrew was a UC student.
"I am never going to find an answer that makes me say, 'oh I get it,'" Lynch said.
Lynch and his family are a part of the effort to educate those affected by suicide.
"If we can save one life, it's worth the effort," he said.
Bauer and Lynch stressed the importance of community and family at this time. They say it is good to get back into a routine.
While it is easy to get lost in the shuffle, there are hotlines and counseling available to those in need.
