Saving Ourselves from Suicide - Before and After: How to Ask for Help, Recognize Warning Signs, and Navigate Grief

Saving Ourselves from Suicide - Before and After: How to Ask for Help, Recognize Warning Signs, and Navigate Grief - Linda Pacha

Saving Ourselves from Suicide - Before and After: How to Ask for Help, Recognize Warning Signs, and Navigate Grief


A MUCH-NEEDED HELP BOOK ON SUICIDE, DEPRESSION, AND LOSS

Nick, a kindhearted nineteen-year-old, walked from his college campus to a tall bridge and jumped into the Mississippi. The lost body, the subsequent jumpers - suddenly the unthinkable became unfathomable.

Pacha shares the moving story of her teen's suicide and family's grief process but doesn't stop there. The practical guidance, examples, and insights she offers are invaluable for anyone struggling in life, wanting to help others, or suffering any loss. This book is a memorable call to action for more kindness and compassion.

Suicide Prevention - Access to real-life examples of suicide warning signs missed in Nick's last behaviors and communications; discussion of mental health issues as a risk factor; an inside look at private challenges, like bullying and not fitting in; and ways to help those struggling to stay alive

Self-Help/Grief After Loss - Recommendations on navigating the grief process, including the challenging steps back into society, new family dynamics, and necessary choices after loss; explanation of the stigma, judgment, and misconceptions of mental health and suicide; and ways to help loss survivors

Tips for a Better Tomorrow - Practical suggestions for reducing the pressure we put on ourselves and our youth and for creating a more compassionate world

Descrierea produsului


A MUCH-NEEDED HELP BOOK ON SUICIDE, DEPRESSION, AND LOSS

Nick, a kindhearted nineteen-year-old, walked from his college campus to a tall bridge and jumped into the Mississippi. The lost body, the subsequent jumpers - suddenly the unthinkable became unfathomable.

Pacha shares the moving story of her teen's suicide and family's grief process but doesn't stop there. The practical guidance, examples, and insights she offers are invaluable for anyone struggling in life, wanting to help others, or suffering any loss. This book is a memorable call to action for more kindness and compassion.

Suicide Prevention - Access to real-life examples of suicide warning signs missed in Nick's last behaviors and communications; discussion of mental health issues as a risk factor; an inside look at private challenges, like bullying and not fitting in; and ways to help those struggling to stay alive

Self-Help/Grief After Loss - Recommendations on navigating the grief process, including the challenging steps back into society, new family dynamics, and necessary choices after loss; explanation of the stigma, judgment, and misconceptions of mental health and suicide; and ways to help loss survivors

Tips for a Better Tomorrow - Practical suggestions for reducing the pressure we put on ourselves and our youth and for creating a more compassionate world

(ALL BOOK SALE NET PROCEEDS GO TOWARD SUICIDE PREVENTION)

"The author has a crystal clear vision of mental health and the continuums of illness. Saving Ourselves from Suicide is both a personal journey and warning to families. The author is clearly on a mission to save others from the tragedy that befell her family. It is invaluable." - Christine Z. Somerville, PhD, Director of Programs, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), Cook County North Suburban, Chicagoland

"A meaningful glimpse into the powerful loss and the many things we can do to support each other and our loved ones through struggle." - Alison Malmon, Founder/Executive Director, Active Minds

"This book is important on so many levels. It describes the emotional journey of living through the events leading up to suicide and walks through the painful steps of the initial shock and long grieving process. It is a valuable resource to make it through grief and loss." - Steve Arkin, MD, Attending Neurologist, Miami Valley Hospital, Assistant Professor, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, Cofounder, SpeakUp

"A call to action to turn the tide of despair that is now so prevalent in our culture today." - Rev. Dr. Scott Mitchell, MTh, PsyD, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, President and CEO, SamaraCare

"Not only is this book a must-read for anyone suffering a loss of suicide, it is also a guide offering support for those living with a loved one who suffers from mental illness. Linda's heartfelt storytelling opens the door for us survivors to move through our pain and start healing." - Monica Pedersen, Suicide Loss Survivor, Former HGTV Host, and Author
