September is Suicide prevention Month. To help shine light on the subject we deep dive into Michelle's personal and professional experience. This episode get's personal and can be a heavy subject, so we broke this episode into 2 parts.

She tells us how her husband suffered from bi- polar and schizophrenia, that went undiagnosed for years. Then when they started seeking help it was a taboo topic.

She shares "My husband hide his illness so well that when he told the hospital, I'm just an angry wife and that he was fine, they believed him and released him." What a chilling thought especially with the events that followed.

Shortly after that her husband committed suicide. For years she kept it a secret from friends and her own sons. It took 11 years of healing from within to share her story. Now she helps others with mental health issues.

She is truly inspiring and the work she does defiantly helps shine a light on the taboo subject.
