NFL to be honored for suicide prevention efforts

The SportsXchange

The National Football League will be honored May 8 for trying to lower the amount of suicides.

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will give the NFL its Humanitarian Award.

Launched in 2012, NFL Life Line was created as a place for current and former NFL players, coaches, team and league staff, and family members who may be in danger. Callers are connected with trained counselors.

Players such as Junior Seau, OJ Murdock and Jovan Belcher had committed suicide in 2012 alone. NFL Life Line also lists information about depression and suicide warning signs, and contains player testimonials imploring those in danger to "make the call" for help.
