After 20 years worth of experience working with people who experienced war trauma, she found herself dealing with her own family crisis.
Diagnosed bipolar, her late husband tried multiple times to take his life, ultimately resulting in his death from a completed suicide. His illness and their journey together challenged her every skill as a Public Health practitioner and as a human being.
Recognizing though experience that resources are limited and difficult to find, especially when experiencing a family crisis, she launched this website to tell her story and provide a clearing house of resources in hopes that it may help even one person prevent the loss of a loved one.
She lives happily remarried and re-engaged in life and living to help others through the difficulties associated with caring for a person at risk for suicide.
