Speaking of Suicide
How to Talk to Families Who’ve Suffered a Loss by Suicide


A loss by suicide is like no other, and the grief can be especially traumatic. Given that many of these families feel intense shame and might even be unwilling to confide it was a suicide, directors are often unsure of the right thing to do or say. This workshop offers guidance on supporting families who have suffered a loss by suicide and includes downloads and handouts for families.

Learning Outcomes

  • What to say or not say
  • Supporting families who’ve suffered loss by suicide

I am an emotionally naked TEDx 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 substance use disorder 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, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, 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. Professional Speaker Website. Trained in ASIST and trainer for the evidence-based 4-hour training for everyone called safeTALK.
