Suicide coalition heart — #griefheart number 210

Suicide coalition heart

Shirley Ramsey brought these to our suicide coalition meeting tonight to celebrate Virginia AFSP chapter awards. And we all reflected on how finally doors are opening and people are listening and doing something about mental health, substance misuse and suicide.

I’ve been an mental health advocate for 7 years and I swear doors were so tightly closed on those subjects I couldn’t have gotten through with a stick of dynamite. Today I am thankful  to feel a shift in attitudes as it relates to mental illness. I feel change. Keep sharing. It’s working and it’s time.
