It’s been a tough, tough week. I am not usually punny. But heart-wrenching is how I have felt. Feeling better after lunch with Stephanie today.
What is the #griefheart project?
I explain my #griefheart project here.
See all #griefhearts so far on pinterest or on this blog by #griefheart category.

I am an emotionally naked mental health speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind and co-author with Kim O'Brien PhD, LICSW of Emotionally Naked: A Teacher's Guide to Preventing Suicide and Recognizing Students at Risk. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my younger son, Charles to addiction and suicide on June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational mental health keynotes, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, anxiety, coping strategies/resilience, and grief.
As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory.
Mental Health Speakers Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.

It helps to have good friends who will listen, who will stick around through the good and the bad! Surround yourself with people who love you and won’t treat you as if this was yesterday’s news, and why haven’t you moved on yet. The loss of a child takes a piece of your heart that you can never replace. Give yourself time and keep writing about it! It helps so much. ❤️
Thank you Stephanie. Love you
I think of you so very much! Thank you for letting us be with you. Ox I am so sorry it has been such a hard week.
Thank you. Friends pulled me out of it and distracted me when it was time. Thank you Sara.
