The Size of the Relationship Determines the Size of the Grief
Something Positive for Positive People Podcast Episode 122
Many of the conversations with our stigmatized individuals have included some trauma that has impacted their mental health to some extent leading to depression, suicide ideation, and attempts in many cases.
We meet with Grief Counselor, Christine Frampus, to discuss one aspect of mental health stigma, survivors of suicide. In this, we define trauma, suicide, and grief so that we're all at the same starting point as we learn to support one another through the grieving and healing processes.
