Welcome to episode two hundred twenty one of Above Ground Podcast. This week Will & TPP kick off September and Suicide Prevention and Awareness month with a raw and frank discussion on staying alive when you don’t really want to live. This is could be a triggering conversation for some, so just take precautions when listening.
Living on a Prayer was not just Bon Jovi’s biggest hit, it’s sometimes the way we survive life’s tragedies. Throwing up our hands and saying I can’t do it alone, finding our higher power and letting go. For those of us who live with suicidal ideation or depression sometimes wanting to live is just too hard. Fighting to make it through another day is far too heavy a burden.
During this month we remember the lost. But, let us not forget those that are still amongst us giving their best to just survive another day. Help us celebrate those that we have lost on Sunday September 24,2023 at Orenda Pavillon in Saratoga Spa State Park for Out of the Darkness Walk for RITA 2023 at 9am.
Also this Saturday, September 9, from 1-4 at the Knox Town Park for the Kiwanis Club of the Helderbergs Art Festival for Mental Health, 2192 Berne-Altamont Road, Altamont NY 12209. Check out Amy Modesti’s piece spotlighting AGP will be there and is looking forward to seeing everyone.
Thanks for listening and return every Wednesday. Please sign up for RITA to walk, maybe donate and until next time stay Above.
