New Patient Story

  • Location: Portland, OR,

I made two unsuccessful attempts by the age of 13. I finally sought help after a classmate laid his neck down on a circular saw and I saw the pain it caused the entire community. For 20 years I was able to use my own personal struggle and journey to support and comfort the families of the hundreds of people lost to suicide thay I provided final care for during my career as a funeral director and embalmer. I have also drawn on my experiences to support my daughter who had her first safety plan at the age of 8.
