Monica Drake is the Communications Representative for the State of Michigan's Office of Good Government. She previously worked as an editor and reporter for The Oakland Press in Pontiac, Mich. Suicide awareness has been important to her ever since her relative lost his life to suicide. Now, she wants to help people by sharing signs of depression, reasons to live, resources, suicide and bullying prevention groups, other people's stories and memorials. She especially wants to show people that they are not alone.
