Veteran’s Day heart – #griefheart number 181

Veteran's day griefheart
Veteran’s day

Transitioning to life after service is difficult and PTSD, depression, addiction, anxiety and other mental illnesses plague our troops and veterans.

On this Veteran’s day, we honor those who have fought for our country. And remember those we lost in battle as well as those we lost to internal battles known as suicide.

Thank you Charles Davis for this photograph of your purple heart from injury sustained July 26, 2011. We are happy you are with us today to celebrate your service to our country.

I am an emotionally naked TEDx speaker, and author of the Book, Diary of a Broken Mind. I raised two boys, Richard and Charles, and lost my youngest son, Charles to substance use disorder and suicide June 5, 2015. I help people foster a culture of connection to prevent suicide, reduce substance misuse and find life after loss. My motivational, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, 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. Professional Speaker Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.
