It’s important to educate, advocate and support people with mental illness and their families. This includes breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health and suicide. Suicide is something that affects many of us in the animal welfare field and although, this was a very emotional and challenging podcast for me to record, it is important to talk about. I am joined by my friend and licensed professional counselor, Dr. Meghan Breedlove and we discuss my recent experience with grieving for friends and colleagues I have lost to suicide, address some common myths, and share tips on how to start the conversation with others regarding suicide.
