According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 31,000 men, women and children take their own lives every year in the United States—and Wisconsin resident Tina Zahn almost became one of them in 2004.
On the outside, Tina appeared to be like many other women. She was a devoted wife and mother of two. She also volunteered at school and church in addition to working full-time. Privately, Tina was also struggling with postpartum depression. One day, she says something inside her snapped. She grabbed her car keys, tore out of the driveway and sped down the highway with only one thought on her mind—plunging off a 200-foot bridge.
