Suicide amongst teenagers and young adults between the ages of 15-24 is the third leading cause of death around the world. 

In 2006, depressed teenager, Matthew Silverman, tragically took his own life. In an effort to turn this tragedy into something positive, Matthew’s father, Ron Silverman, founded The Matthew Silverman Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to combating teen suicide.

Jackie Watson, the French reporter, was at The Comedy Store in Hollywood where one of the foundations many gala’s was being held. Jackie spoke with many elite celebrities who were in attendance about their thoughts on suicide and what suggestions they may have for anyone who may be contemplating suicide. 

Drew Seeley believes one should surround themselves with positive people. Johnny Sanchez believes that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Clementine Heath believes that depression and suicidal thoughts are constant struggles. Mandy Amano says to remember you are not alone. JLewis Mills believes you should have good people around you. Raj Sharma states that whatever situation you are in, it will pass. Pia Perfra and Laurie Allen also state that you are not alone. And Ron Silverman says, ‘not to take a permanent solution for a temporary problem.’

If you are someone who is struggling with thoughts of suicide or you know someone who is, please know that there is hope for you and there are many people and foundations such as this one, who are willing to help. All you need to do is reach out and ask for help. Communication is key.


The Matthew Silverman Foundation is making a huge difference in the lives of many and we are proud to stand beside them to help fight suicide and to offer support to those who need it.

In closing, please remember, suicide is never the answer. There is always tomorrow.
