It's World Suicide Prevention Day and Author Colleen Story gives a unique perspective on the topic. She shares how her experience with her father's suicide impacted her in her writing process for her new book. She also walks us through techniques to use writing to express, cope with, and overcome trauma.
I also wanted to play a past interview with a mother who lost her son to suicide and how she created a new beginning for herself.
We wrap up with some specific tips and resources on how to deal with a conversation when a friend confides suicidal thoughts to you and how to prevent suicide for yourself and others.
