Suicide prevention is as vital to Meghan and Harry as it is to Ragland. About a month ago, the Sussex couple recognized the World Suicide Prevention Day by announcing a plethora of resources that can be of assistance on their Instagram account.

The incentive caption read:

“This World Suicide Prevention Day, we would like to spread the available support far and wide to ensure that no-one goes through a crisis alone,"
