Don't settle for 'I'm okay,' father shares story after son dies by suicide
Twenty years ago, talking about one's mental health was not as common as it is today, but the taboo has not been completely erased. That's why one set of parents is bringing it to the forefront after losing their son to suicide. Anthony Salas said his son, Ben was happy and cheerful. In a home video of a younger Ben, he can be seen sledding down a winter slope of snow and laughing the whole ride down. That laughter continued in another video of an older Ben, but the smile is just the same.
