The Leftover Pieces; Suicide Loss Conversations
Lisa Johnson of Honor Connor; How to Walk & Talk for Hope
Show Notes

Today I share my talk with Lisa Johnson. She is the Managing Director and Co-Founder of Honor Connor - a nonprofit who's mission it is to stop the stigma and start the conversation around mental health, addiction & suicide loss. Honor Connor also provides hope & healing to those affected by suicide loss by providing education & resources. Lisa & her husband Scott started Honor Connor after they lost their son Connor in 2016 to suicide after a struggle with depression, anxiety, cancer and substance abuse.

Lisa talks openly about:

  • the total devastation that suicide leaves in its wake
  • how isolating this loss can be but until you live it, you just don't understand - hence the need for conversation & education
  • how survivors need to find hope and support to start to heal
  • how everything changes and that you have to do things differently now
  • why they started Honor Connor 
  • what programs and events Honor Connor is currently providing

We also talked a lot about the upcoming 2nd Annual Walk & Talk for Hope. The 2nd Annual Honor Connor Walk & Talk for Hope
is an opportunity for all of us to invite our family and/or friends to get together for dedicated time to Walk & Talk about the stuff that really matters.

As one of Honor Connor's signature programs, they encourage everyone to join them virtually or in person at one of the two satellite locations.

Each registered walker will receive Honor Connor’s 'Conversation Starter - Digital Tool Kit' to support you starting the conversation on the day of the walk, and every day.
