On January 9, 2016 our world was turned upside down. The man that I called my husband for 14 years, the father of my daughter, a wonderful son, brother, uncle and friend took is own life. In a single instant life as we all knew it has been forever changed. Dale was never someone that most thought struggled with depression. On the outside he appeared happy. What few people knew is that he struggled silently for a very long time and ultimately suicide was the way he ended his pain. There is such a stigma surrounding mental health, but it doesn't have to be this way. Lets talk about it, lets learn about the signs and symptoms, lets do something to end the stigma! My hope is that no one will ever know the pain that we have felt since that early January morning.
