The suicide rate among African American children doubled between 1993 and 2012, and one Detroit native hopes to stop the rate from increasing by breaking a stigma of silence.

“I had a lot of issues with myself like not really liking like how dark I was knowing that I was depressed but not really knowing how to kind of contract those emotions,” said Stephanie Grimes.

Stephanie Grimes is an African American woman that grew up in Detroit.

Ninth grade was the first time she attempted suicide.
