A local restaurant joins in to raise awareness about suicide this month.
Continuing our coverage on suicide awareness and prevention month, 39 news visits Twist.
This month Twist is raising money that will be donated to a suicide prevention hotline.
A portion of dinner sales for the whole month of september will go towards the donation.
Food and beverage director at Twist, Michael Tessaro, lost his son to suicide in 2015.
He hopes raising awareness gives people courage to speak up.
“It’s okay to stand up and speak, its okay to say hey do you need help. Or if you say. I’m fine, dig a little deeper, because ‘im fine’ usually means help me, save me.”
