The Leftover Pieces; Suicide Loss Conversations
Trauma Induced Creativity; Why Helping Helps Us
Show Notes

In today's "Down the Rabbit Hole" episode in life after a suicide loss, I talk about why helping helps - you know, why 'getting involved' or writing or painting - HELPS. I go into a lot of things here but the resulting message all ties back to why DOING or HELPING actually helps us move forward and heal! 

I have included a few links of 'places & spaces' that you may wish to look at in order to get involved. 

  • AFSP - Volunteer (many ways to get involved) 
  • Peyton Heart Project A global project created to help end suicide and bullying and the stigma surrounding mental health issues.
  • Active Minds changing the conversation about mental health
  • HicksStrong Supporting Heros (helping raise funds and awareness so they can provide therapy to veterans and enlisted military struggling with mental health)
  • Everytown for Gun Safety (leading organization that promotes gun safety and support after suicide by firearm) 

There are SO MANY place we can find to put our energy - our creativity! Let me know if I can help plug you in based on your interests or passions.

I have also included one of which takes you to the signing up space to get started in our very own
"Picking up the Pieces" Community HERE. It's in the beginning phase so dive on in now and help to make it exactly what you need!
