Punk told the audience who was listening if anybody was struggling with thoughts of suicide or has depression to immediately seek out help.
It is a very sad way to die. My thoughts go out to everybody in her family, especially to her daughter. May is Mental Health Month. If you feel depressed and things are not going right, there is no reason why one should feel as if they are alone. Reach out to a person you know. Text one of your friends. Make a call. There are hotlines if you have nobody. There is always a way to get help.
