Video games take bold step against youth suicide | science, technology, south africa, rhodes university, grahamstown, rhodes university journalism, gadgets, environment, | Scoop.it

understanding from oneself and from ones family is defininitely a huge step toward acceptance or cure. If this program gets far I believe that it would be an amazing journey to better well- being for many-Justine Pearce
