Brooke DiPalma has a simple message for everyone dealing with depression: You're not alone.
The 15-year-old West Islip High School sophomore has recently started a campaign that has already gone viral. "P.S. I Love You" isn't just the name of a 2007 film, they're the words Brooke emphasizes for others to use to help fight against suicide.
In April of 2010, Brooke lost her father Joseph, then the WI Chamber of Commerce president, to suicide. Now she's extending a hand to those suffering from the same sickness.
"The very last words I said to my dad were I love you," DiPalma told News 4 New York. "Those simple words can just be so powerful to a person and change their life."
She recently posted a Youtube video that has already reached over 12,000 views, and started a Facebook page dedicated to her cause that has 475 fans.
On Wednesday, NBC featured her on a news segment and people are starting to catch on. She's rallying up teachers and students throughout New York to wear something purple on February 10th, to support everyone battling self-inflicting thoughts. .
"I just saw you on T.V. and I watched your video," Alexa Raia wrote on the Facebook wall. "Did you see how many views you have ? You are such an inspiration! I am so excited for P.S. I love you Day! Your video was amazing! Oh and P.S. I love you!"
