The topic of mental illness can often be complex and confusing. From situational to chronic classifications, the stigma associated with mental health disorders often stems from misdirected social beliefs. Enter a unique perspective on the topic of mental illness, the influence of internal and external communication, a simple to understand path from illness to wellness, and how to fully embrace the infinite value of second chances.
Journey through the initial and advanced stages of suicide ideation, the complexity of behaviors, and the internal, instinctive desire for life. This message connects on a very personal level with audiences of every kind, recognizing that we are all survivors of something, and how the prevention of suicide has much more to do with how one is empowered toward living than how to keep someone from dying. Walk the steps of a true survivor story that will reshape the way you view bad days, the term “crazy”, and desire for uncovering the upside to any adversity, especially in your own life.
Reshape everything you thought you knew about the topic nobody wants to talk about – suicide. Expand your understanding of what suicide is and isn’t. Then explore the complexities of the human brain and social influences of common belief systems. Learn how to identify a shift in perceptions, interests, and behaviors among those in positions of power, leadership, and influence, and how the terms “success” and “suicide” are more closely linked than you might think. Suicide doesn’t discriminate and what you learn in this presentation/workshop may just save a life; it could be your own.
