Donna Holland Barnes, a certified grief recovery specialist, life coach, and author of The Truth About Suicide, shares a personal experience about suicide and how it impacted her life, shifting her focus to helping others.
In her conversation with Omega digital media director Cali Alpert, Donna discusses grief and suicide, and how eschewing a prescription pad for a healthful lifestyle and the support of others can bolster mental health. With a rise in suicides today—especially among young people—Donna talks about the importance of coping mechanisms and safe havens for dialogue in school curricula, and how truly listening is key to restoring hope.
