Understanding the Complexities of Suicide

Over several decades, I had been trained in suicide prevention and intervention.  I had known people who suicided: employees, the children of employees, others…

I thought I understood suicide.  Then my beloved husband killed himself.

And I realized I didn’t know shit about suicide.

I was devastated.  Destroyed.  Couldn’t think, couldn’t function.  And I realized there were too many others in the same boat.

So I started The Grief Warrior Project, to help survivors of suicide loss get through.

But that doesn’t address the problem of those who have lost hope.  Here’s another article on the topic.
