Lived experience mental health advocate Melissa C. Water has created another great YouTube video, this time on the subject of online comments directed at suicidal people.

She talks about ignorant online comments, such as criticizing a person for not being suicidal the right way, and how there is no right way to be suicidal.

Then blasting at a very serious problem, people who leave comments advising others to kill themselves, she reminds us that there are laws against this in many countries (including the US and Canada).

View all her mental health videos on her YouTube channel, and check out her Tumblr and Facebook as well.
