A former Washougal resident is hoping to make a difference, particularly in the lives of youth.
Elijah "Mentality" Huckins recently released a suicide prevention and awareness music video "Leaf on a Limb." It is among the songs on his CD "Risk It All."
In addition to hoping to reach as many youth as possible, Huckins thinks the video could be a great tool for parents.
"Parents could use it to communicate with their children about this tragic reality," he said. "This video shows what is left behind and most importantly that there is help and hope. These are not just actors but people who have really lost someone to suicide."
