Talking About Suicide: Our words matter
My goals for the presentation are to define stigma; to briefly introduce the definition, causes, and treatments for mental health conditions; to help our community understand how easy it is to stigmatize mental illness; and to share some guidelines for the best way to speak about mental illness and suicide, speak with survivors of suicide loss, what to do when you catch yourself speaking in a stigmatizing way, and how to approach others who use stigmatizing language. ~Kimberly Starr

Kimberly Starr
Presenter @Starrbright Suicide Prevention Presentations
After her son 16-year-old son, Tom, died by suicide in March 2015, she started writing to process her feelings around her loss. Her pieces about her grief and the aftermath of her son's death have been published by The Mighty, Our Side of Suicide, The Ugly Shoes Club, The Compassionate Friends, SOSBA, and other national and international blogs and publications. She compiled the writings from the first 457 days of her loss into a book called, 457 Days: A Mother’s Journey Along Grief’s Path.
