What were some early signs of Charles’ depression? Did he indicate feelings of suicidality? What was he like as a young child? How do you ask someone if they are thinking of suicide?
I answer these and other questions on this radio show with Cynthia Hash of the Mitchell Hash Foundation in Charlottesville, VA so parents and others can avoid the outcome both Cynthia and I have suffered.
Cynthia is the founder of the Mitchell Hash Foundation for suicide awareness. It was started in honor of her son, Mitchell, who served in the military and died by suicide.
I first met Cynthia in June of 2015 online right after her son’s death. Charles and Mitchell died around the same time. We met in person (she’s in Charlottesville,VA and I’m in Richmond, VA) about nine months later at my first presentation on suicide. We’ve kept in touch and supported each other’s efforts ever since.
You will hear in this show points I’ve not made before. I hope you will listen.
