This is NOT a Suicide Prevention Podcast; Does that Even Matter?
Show Notes

Today I am feeling a bit feisty!  I have been wanting to talk about this for a while. The Leftover Pieces:; Suicide Loss Conversations Podcast is NOT a suicide prevention podcast. And it is OKAY to say that. I support suicide prevention - naturally. And I often come alongside people to do prevention type work. That makes sense. BUT my podcast is for suicide loss survivors. The podcast is to have hard conversations and to try and help us make a meaningful life from the shattered pieces we have found ourselves sitting in... what used to be our life, and our future and everything that made sense. 

Today I talk about: 

  • Why I am willing to say this outloud
  • How we approach or see grief - let's talk about the history of grief
  • Ancient philosophy and how that helps me (and could help you) 
  • (I get a little 'up on a pedestal in the end --- but I am not even sorry!) 

The following is a list of ways (with links) that you might be able to be seen, heard and supported! 

  • My Dec.5 "Growth in Grief; Healing Trauma in our Mind, Body & Spirit" series - Go HERE for more info and to sign up Healing starts with knowledge! You can STILL ENROLL and catch up at your leisure!! 

  • The upcoming "Moms Legacy Compilation Project" - one of the biggest desires we have as a parent is that the world know our child. That their name is said, and their story known. there is also SO much healing to be had from this project. Check it out HERE.

  • Upcoming Downloadables for various alternative healing modalities

  • Upcoming new tools - the next 2 books are officially come - The HOPE series! 

  • Exciting new episode styles and a fun addition to the podcast in Jan.
