Today is Part 2 of the Suicide Panel Discussion. This panel is made up of powerful influencers, and I must admit, just when I thought I knew what one of them was going to say, they surprised me with a different insight. I put together this panel because of my own shock at what is being called the suicide “epidemic.” Tune in for Part 2.
We all know those feelings of disconnect, alienation and even hopelessness. These are common human emotions. But what is happening that has propelled the idea of taking your own life as a possible solution? Current suicide rates have been referred to as an epidemic. What’s going on? Today I have an amazing panel put together on the topic of suicide. These men and women have personal experience with suicide – either with family members or in Seth’s case, his own personal experience. We have put this panel together because we care. Because suicide as a supposed solution is out of control and we need to find answers, reduce shame, and shine a light of hope.
Join us for Part 2 of the Amanda Grow story. Did you know that the United States has the highest maternal mortality rate in the developed world? Because severe childbirth complications have become very rare, it is easy to forget that childbirth can be life threatening. Amanda Grow, a wife and mother of 4 children, experienced an extremely rare complication of childbirth known as Amniotic Fluid Embolism which has a mortality rate of 80%. Last week you heard about her rapid blood transfusion that nearly drained the hospitals blood supply and left her in a medically induced coma for a week. This week we’ll get more of her story and talk about the importance of healing – both body and mind, and grieving the loss of who she was before the ordeal. Sometimes that’s one of the most crucial parts of the process. Letting go of what was for what is.
