There are three groups of people affected by suicide:
- Those who succeed
- Those such as my family members, who are left-behinds
- Those who attempted suicide and survived.
There is nothing we can do, anymore, for the first group. For the second and third groups, we so often don’t know what to say, so we say nothing. Listen to this short TED talk, because, as he says at the end, “It’s a conversation worth having.”
It’s especially something to be mindful of during the holiday season.
