I have been invited to speak to the Roeland Park Police Department about my late husband’s suicide and what it means to be a suicide loss survivor. The speaking engagement will take place July 19th on the first floor of Roeland Park City Hall at 1pm. This is a free event and all are welcome. Chief Morris said if we need a larger space that we are able to move the event to a larger location. Please let me know if you would like to attend. I will keep you posted about the location a week before the event.

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
