Dear Heidi (GM Superbowl Ad)

Dear Heidi,
?
I am a survivor of suicide. My son Keith took his own life on March 29, 1999 at that time I knew nothing about depression the number one cause of suicide.
?
I have been trying to help stop the stigma that accompanies the word suicide. Depression is the leading cause of suicide. A depressed person may feel hopeless and see no reason to live.
?
In the 2nd quarter of the Super Bowl there was a commercial from GMC about a robot that was no longer needed for his job so he jumped off a bridge. I found the ad so offensive. I am asking others to? E-Mail GMC about their ad. Depression is a real illness and can lead to a death by suicide. I am not sure why a commercial like this would be shown on National Television. Let’s take a stand!!
