The Leftover Pieces; Suicide Loss Conversations

Melissa Bottorff-Arey

Life after suicide loss is nothing short of a wasteland of the leftover pieces of your shattered heart, of your former self. Join host Melissa, a mother who lost her 21-year old son Alex to suicide in 2016, as she has real conversations with other loss survivors, healers and mental health experts. In these conversations she explores the relevant topics and asks the hard questions we all need to talk about and hear answers to. Nothing is 'off limit' as she delves into areas such a trauma, hope, healing, self-care, stigma, grief & mental health. Melissa believes that we learn to live with our grief ,not get over it, and only through real, honest talk and mindful choices can we move forward in this new life (one we never wanted). Along with finding the comfort of a community and hope for a little brighter tomorrow, you too just may begin to fill your own 'grief toolbox' with some good, solid tools to help you find, even learn to love, your (new) self along the way.
