Goodnight Mr. Vincent van Gogh offers a gentle way of explaining a loved one’s suicide to a child without sweeping it under the rug. By starting an open and honest conversation with our youth, we can help break down the stigmas and start raising mental health awareness. We need to teach our children that it’s ok to speak up and ask questions about feelings they might not understand instead of keeping our emotions hidden. Together we can stay above the rug!
This book includes resources on suicide support, a space to write a letter to your lost loved one, and a page where you can attach his/her photo. For each book that is purchased, part of the proceeds to go to SASS (Suicide Awareness Survivor Support).
The book is on permanent display in the official Vincent Van Gogh Library in the Netherlands..where Vincent once lived and worked.
