    Episode 416: “Suicide Attempt: Moving Forward With Hope” with Author Bill Konigsberg

    Episode 416: “Suicide Attempt: Moving Forward With Hope” with Author Bill Konigsberg

    In the final episode of season four and to close out the Another Day With You campaign, we talk to someone who attempted suicide at the age of 27 and went on to write a book inspired by his own experience. That person is author Bill Konigsberg and that book is The Bridge. In our conversation, you’ll hear about Bill’s chronic, untreated depression which led to an attempt, and how writing the book became a way to dispel the lies his brain was telling him while encouraging readers.

    Episode 415: “Suicide Prevention: Why Do You Stay Another Day?”

    Episode 415: “Suicide Prevention: Why Do You Stay Another Day?”

    For today’s episode, instead of a one-on-one interview, we’re doing something a little different. We’ve invited an array of voices to share some heartfelt responses to some questions: 1. Who or what has helped you stay another day? And 2. What would you say to someone who is finding it difficult to stay another day? Their responses are honest and unique, but there is often, and perhaps unsurprisingly, a common occurrence of hope. If some responses don’t resonate with you, that’s OK.

    Over the course of the next few episodes, in honor of TWLOHA’s Another Day With You campaign and World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10, we want to use this space to have conversations that challenge the lie that says we can’t or shouldn’t talk about suicide. We want to share real-life experiences as they relate to suicide attempts, loss, and ideation. For today’s conversation, we’re chatting with and hearing from Carrie Thompson, who lost her son Ben to suicide two years ago.

    Episode 412: “On Self-Awareness, Representation, & Defying Stigma” with Ricky Neal (from Crisis Text Line)

    In this episode, we’re joined by Ricky Neal, Crisis Text Line’s Volunteer Experience Manager. As a Black man growing up in Laurens, South Carolina, he’ll share his personal mental health experience when it comes to racial identity and cultural stigma, and from a professional lens, Ricky will talk about the importance of having the people on the other end of a call, text, or counseling appointment be able to identify with the unique struggles BIPOC communities face on a daily basis.

    Episode 411: “Decolonizing Therapy and Healing” with Therapist Gabes Torres

    Episode 411: “Decolonizing Therapy and Healing” with Therapist Gabes Torres

    July is BIPOC Mental Health Month in the US. It exists to “bring awareness to the unique struggles that underrepresented groups face regarding mental illness” in this country. While mental health challenges impact humans regardless of race, body size, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, and so on, we also recognize that racism, colonization, police brutality, and white supremacy—among other things—are events and harsh realities that affect BIPOC in a significant way.

Thank You

Thank you for speaking up about the things that are so difficult to talk about. For connecting so many people who are hurting. And for reminding us all that we’re not alone. This is such a beautiful and relatable podcast. I’m so grateful for it and look forward to hearing more!

Helps so much. Thank you.

I was introduced to this by a staff while I was in a treatment facility dealing with mental health struggles. These podcasts and all the stories from TWLOHA helped me through my treatment and has been a part of my journey ever since. It’s helped me move on from my trauma-filled past and acknowledge that I’m not alone. Whenever I start to spiral I always go straight to this, it always helps me get out of my dark places. I don’t know where I’d be without it. Thank you TWLOHA.
