Starting the Conversation

Katelynn's platform, Starting the Conversation: Suicide Prevention and Awareness is breaking down the stigma that surrounds suicide and facing the issue, not turning the other way.  Stigma is the number one reason why people are afraid to discuss mental illness and suicide, that's why starting the conversation is so important.  As Miss Empire Rose, Katelynn is working hard to spread the word about how important suicide education is, not only to increase awareness but to make suicide a more preventable issue.
