I can’t imagine losing a loved one to suicide. Unfortunately, I know many people who have lost siblings, parents, spouses, fiances, etc. The death of Robin Williams brought this to the forefront for me. When I saw 89.7 the River had created a challenge to raise awareness about suicide prevention, I was in.
There is so much stigma about mental illness that many are afraid of getting help or being chastised. Personally, I don’t know how I ever would have gotten over the domestic abuse I survived or the death of my mother when I was 25 without therapy. If you need help, please seek it, and suspect someone needs help, please encourage them to talk about it.
Here’s the challenge!
And how we looked after! It was lots of fun for a good cause.
Thanks to the Dabkowskis for doing this challenge with me.
