THE STORY:

As a mental health therapist part of my job is to assess and treat children and families with mental health disorders, including depression. I have the pleasure of meeting wonderful people and hearing their life stories. Many have changed my life without knowing it! In essence they become like family, as they let you into their world and hopefully learn to trust that you will do whatever you can to help them through the healing process. As a clinician it is possible that one day you get ‘that one’ phone call you never want to receive…someone has completed suicide. Never did I imagine that on June 30, 2011 I would be receiving this phone call, not regarding a consumer, but rather from my own family. My cousin Kyle had suffered from depression and made a decision to end his life. I was frozen. You think this happens to some other family. Although it has been tough to watch my family grieve, I have been amazed at their strength and courage. Survivors of Suicide was part of their grieving process and we are participating in the Walk for Hope in hopes that we can expand community resources and services for those suffering from depression and also for the survivors who are trying their best to live one day at a time. Kyle was a musician and I know he’d want us to play on…
