We can do more to prevent suicide
Before you tune into this episode, I want to let you know that I cover topics regarding mental health challenges and some of what is shared here may be a trigger for those who are dealing with the topic at hand. Please know that I am not a medical or mental health professional. I am a person who is living with the mental illness of clinical depression and anxiety and this podcast is an audio diary of MY personal journey through recovery. While I find myself a member of a community of millions of people sharing similar struggles, our journeys are unique and personal which is why it’s important that you find a recovery strategy that works for you. Even better when you have the guidance of a licensed mental health and/or medical professional to support you.
If you or know someone who is depressed and in need to talk, please call the National Suicide Prevention hotline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or text HOME to 741741 to reach a crisis counselor.
