The Youth Suicide Prevention Program at Tri-County Mental Health Services purchased my book for the schools in the Missouri area. This was my goal when writing the book. I wanted “Goodnight Mr. Vincent Van Gogh” to be in every school, counseling office, support group, mental health facility, funeral home, hospital..anywhere it could help. I’m proud that my NashuaElementaryfamily is part of the conversation. In this photo I’m standing with our librarian, counselor, and principal. It’s ok to talk to our little one’s too.

After my husband ended his life I was completely devastated and felt as if I was torn into pieces that could never be put back together. How could life go on? The emotional pain he ended was unknowingly passed onto me. I knew I needed help quickly. I joined a support group called SASS (Suicide Awareness Survivor Support) who supports the ones left behind after a loved one's suicide and also helps raise mental health awareness. I will never get over my husband's death, but I now know that I can get through it, thanks to SASS. I sweep nothing under the rug. By starting an open and honest conversation I hope to help break down the stigmas and start raising mental health awareness. Together we can stay above the rug! View all posts by abovetherug
