Default Itís national suicide awareness week.

Itís national suicide awareness week. These inmates are looking out for those who feel hopeless.

"The number of inmates who have committed suicide across the South Carolina state prison system is lower than its been in the last three years and officials are crediting a program begin expanded at Broad River Correctional Institution.

Currently, there are two units within the system where inmate mentors are trained as mental health companions and help assist with looking after other inmates who are on suicide watch.

The inmates receive their associates or bachelors degree from Columbia International University, who partners with Kirkland Correctional Institution. Inmates within the program also go through mental health training with the departmentís chief psychologist."
