For those that are left behind, they deal with the anguish of losing a loved one or a friend to suicide. I never realized this part until I was able to speak to my friend on the subject. Suicide is difficult for anyone connected to it and it does destroy lives.
What is worse in our society and world is that we shame those who suffer and we don't fix the underlying problems. We spend too little on mental health issues and support, while doing things that are beyond harmful and do anything but help those who suffer.
On February 4, 2017 at 1 pm EST, I am hosting a webinar with my good friend who lost her son to suicide. It is a heartbreaking story, but I hope that through this webinar, we offer hope and some new ways of looking at healing and support. While it is a heavy subject, my intent is to help prevent suicide in others.
The online webinar is free and open to whoever signs up. Space is limited and if I see that it is filling up, we will try to schedule additional webinars. There will be a time for some questions at the end of it. The webinar should be about an hour long.
