I had a cousin commit suicide when I was a young girl, he was 19 or so. I have also attempted suicide on many occasions. I am now 50 with a 13 year old son who is a peer mediator at school and has been given the gift of a great program at his school called The Gatekeeper program which encourages students to be mindful and watchful and to act if a person they know is suicidal. I loved this talk today, how often we forget that it is NOT just us on this planet as individuals trying heroically to conquer our darkness but our connections, our loved ones, and how we turn our mind to better times, even and especially in deep depressioon. Thank you both for a wonderful program.
