Suicide. We’re talking about it more, but the stigma is very much alive.

I’ve experienced suicide ideation at several times in my life. It was rough. Scary. Alarming.

I’ve found that I’m having more and more conversations with people who’ve experienced their own battle with this. So, it’s time to for another series on mental wellness.

The hope is to hear raw and honest stories around suicide from people of walks of life.  We can end the stigma if we share more. We can remove the pain and shame around hurt if we speak out more. We can help someone feel less alone.
