Intro to Suicide Prevention and Awareness

IMG_20140616_183640Good morning and thank you for your interest!

My name is Stephanie and I lost my youngest son, Nicholas(Nick), to suicide on 1/12/13. He was 22 years old.

I’ve begun this blog as an opportunity to share my experience in an effort to help others that may be struggling with the loss of a loved one, and/or suffering from depression; to bring awareness to the signs and symptoms that my family and I noticed prior to Nick’s death.

This blog is also an attempt to assist in the elimination of the stigmas surrounding mental health afflictions and suicide. My hope is that, together, we can inspire hope and motivate others to seek help and save lives.

I would love to hear from anyone that is interested in this topic and is willing to share.

“If I love until it hurts, there is no more pain, only more love.” Mother Theresa

Tomorrow’s blog topic will be focused on forgiveness and the power of love…..

In Peace, Love and Respect,

Stephanie
