OMG what is this world coming to?! 😧😧😢😢...Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of this young lady during this horrific time of grief 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

(Via #DailyMail.co.uk): "An eight-year-old #NewJersey girl took her own life after reportedly reading a news story on #Facebook about a #Colorado girl who hanged herself in November.

#ImaniMcCray had been sent to her room for a time out just before the suicide attempt. Authorities believe she may have read the story about 10-year-old #AshawntyDavis who hanged herself after being bullied at school ---and tried to copy what she read.

Imani had a faint pulse when paramedics arrived, but prosecutors said she was pronounced dead at the University Hospital in #Newark, according to #NBC New York. "....Thoughts?! 💜💜#breakingnews trending #sosad #heartbreaking #timeout #suicideprevention #kelliebrewofficial

Please Read // "Not All Wounds Are Visible" is on the blog. When people are dealing with depression, anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, suicidal, and lost; those issues are often not apparent to the eye. That's why I titled this post, not all wounds are visible. If you or you know someone suffering with depression, fear, anxiety, or any other mental health issues, don't be afraid to reach out and just listen, check in on them, offer love, support, and most importantly, offer suggestions to counselors and professionals who can truly help and support your friend or loved one. There's no shame in needing help and you should never feel bad about who you are, where you are in life, and the issues that you are dealing with. Remember that you're life has meaning, you matter, and that you were created for a purpose. (P.S. The bruises are just makeup!) 🖤 #MentalHealthAwareness

I am about to expose how disorganised I am by finally sharing this finished piece of jewellery which arrived today.

Nearly 12 months ago, when Jared was in a coma after a suicide attempt - which unfortunately was not the first time for us - the people tagged in this post came together and bought me this extremely thoughtful and generous gift. To have Jerry’s actual paw print around my neck is the most precious gift I could have ever asked for. But more importantly, this gesture is so symbolic of the beauty of this community and how much we all mean to each other.
Thank you. Thank you a thousand times over.
I will never forget the generosity of everyone who reached out in some way.

Let this also be a reminder that people fight unknown battles everyday. I know the word suicide is taboo, but we talk about it all the time in our house. This has saved Jared’s life many times. But we still fight mental illness everyday.
I could be accused of presenting a false life on instagram, but I don’t. We still have so much love, beauty and happiness around us and I simply choose to focus on that. But believe me, whether I show it or not, everyday is an ‘adventure’, as we like to put it.
Be kind to yourselves and each other. Remember it’s always better to talk about things, rather than silencing them. And it’s okay to not be okay, help is out there and recovery is possible.

Special thanks to Bani at @misterlawrence_store for getting Jerry’s floofy paw so beautifully on this pendant.

Today’s event was so cool! I spoke to students at Choffin Career & Technical Center in Youngstown, Ohio. Loved meeting the students. #baddtour #marcmero #changinglives #nevergiveup💪 #ibelieve #amazingstudents #choices #stopbullying #bekind #suicideprevention

I always wanted the best for you. I always wanted you to be happy. You were a huge part of my life, almost 7 years of it when we were together, and I can’t believe you’re gone. I’m in utter shock and disbelief and my heart is completely shattered. I just wanted to see you succeed in life. I wanted you to finish school and get married and be a great father to your son. I wanted you to be happy. I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you more over these last two years. I wish I had known just how bad your depression was. We had just started becoming friends again, and I’m so angry and sad and hurt that you would do this. Suicide is something our society needs to talk about more. It is real, it is a sickness that needs a cure. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I wish there was more I could have done to save you. Even after we broke up, I still always had a special place in my heart for you. I never expected to see your life end like this. Bricen, I am so sad. I hurt for your family and friends. I hurt for your son. You were a great guy, and I hate that depression did this to you. You broke my heart once, I didn’t think you’d break it again, not like this. At least I know you are free and at peace from your inner demons. You will always be missed, especially by me. -Kriheh.

If you or someone you know is suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts, get help. Call 1-800-784-2433. Go to suicidepreventionlifeline.org. Save a life. Whatever is happening can be fixed. Don’t make a permanent decision. You’re needed, you’re wanted, you’re loved.💔

I played against some amazing footballers who were incredibly talented, tough and uncompromising.
.
It was a tough and uncompromising game played by aggressive, combative, confrontational and strong men.
.
But the hardest opponent I ever had to compete against never wore an opposition jumper.
.
I played the final 187 games of my career secretly hiding my mental health conditions.
.
I never told a coach, a teammate, a friend or family member.
.
187 games full of anger, aggression, frustration, despair, isolation, loneliness, spiritless, emotionless, hopelessness and unbelievably suicidal.
.
I genuinely loved my teammates, they were my brothers who would do anything for me in the heat of the battle but I felt completely detached, lost and alone every time I stepped onto a football field.
.
No one knew my pain, no one knew I was broken and no one knew wanted to end my life.
.
I gave complete control of my life over to depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder and that extended to the football field.
.
I overcompensated with aggression, anger, confrontation & combativeness to hide any and all signs of mental health conditions from teammates, coaches, opposition players & teams and their supporters.
.
I was ashamed of myself, hated the person I was and loathed the person I’d become all because I had mental health conditions.
.
The shame I felt, the guilt I felt and the embarrassment I felt throughout this entire time was paralyzing and suffocating which is why I consciously chose not to say anything to anyone for 12 years.
.
The kid in this photo was lost, broken, scared and lonely even though he was on a football field doing something he loved with men he loved.

Grief is a funny thing. There were many hard moments after Brianne passed and still are to this day, but one that sticks out in my mind is when I came home from dancing to find my Mom had started to pack away Brianne’s things in her room. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coming home and seeing this hit me like a ton of bricks. I remember how angry I was, angry with my Mom—why would she be putting away Brianne’s things? This was her room and in a way the only thing that we had left of our sister (or so I thought at the time). Her room was exactly how she left it. I was also angry at Brianne—thinking why are we packing up your room? You should still be here with us. I was angry at the world. Why did this happen to Brianne, why our family? Why us? This was a point in my grief where I could no longer live in denial. We were never going to see our older sister again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wrote in my journal that night- a coping mechanism I had learned from Brianne and something I found so helpful after losing her. If I were to look back I am sure there are pages upon pages of angry entries. What I have realized is that with anything in life that you go through, it is okay to be angry, just as long as you don’t stay angry. If I would have remained in a state of anger, it would have only lead to further suffering and sadness. I am so grateful I had a counsellor and my journal to help me through these feelings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Looking back on my anger now I see things in a different light - at the time I was angry my Mom had started to pack away Brianne’s things, but I have now realized that each individual grieves differently. At that time, my Mom needed to pack up Brianne’s room in order to get through her day and move through her grief. In the long run I think my mom always knew what was best and helped us move through our own grief in the most loving way possible. It’s important to remember that everyone grieves in their own way, but if we reach out to each other and share our pain we won’t feel so lost.

Can not believe my story has been published in @thesun 😱😍 hopefully this will help others speak up about their mental health struggles.
All I want is for people to feel less alone. To have people there for them. To be able to open up without feeling ashamed or embarrassed. Because what we are going through is very real. It’s an ILLNESS. Just like any other illness and should be taken seriously.
It’s time to talk. Share your story. Reach out. Message me if you need to. I’m here for any one of you. I’m no therapist but I’m a good listener and I will try my damned hardest to help anyone. I mean it. I’m not just saying it.
Please talk 💚

Forewarning, this is a long emotional post for me that divulges some very personal and intimate information about my life. Please be kind. I was told that I wouldn’t succeed…They were wrong. Ten years ago, I was in a car accident that changed my life. I broke my neck C5, C6, and C7 and I also suffered from a traumatic brain injury which caused severe PTSD and memory loss. At the age of twenty I had to relearn how to live my life. I had doctors, nurses, CNA‘s, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and many more support system to help get me back to being a normal functioning adult. During this time I was severely depressed and attempted suicide. I went from being an independent adult to not being able to shower by myself. The transition from independent to dependent was hard for me and humbling but I realize now that was not the end of my story. I needed independence again, and started working in childcare. It was this job that helped push me in the direction of education. After several years of working with preschool aged children I realized it was something I loved and wanted to know more about. I went back to school and received my Associates degree in early childhood education. I decided at that point I wanted to continue my schooling and pursue my bachelors degree in education as well. In just a few short weeks, I will be student teaching and graduate in May 2018. After my accident I was told that I would never be anything more than “less than average“. These few words haunted me and made me doubt every choice I ever made. Every time I struggled and every time I failed these words flashed through my head, “below average“. They were wrong, I am not less than average. I am strong, I am capable, and I have proved time and time again that I am not defined by those words. To every friend and family member who has help me through this journey, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. #ptsd #spinalfusion #shorttermmemoryloss #memoryloss #survivor #graduatemay2018 #icandohardthings #aboveaverage #specialeducationteacher #earlychildhoodeducation #almostdone #suicideprevention

LIFE IZ video on #vevo A suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean that help isn't wanted. People who take their lives don't want to die—they just want to stop hurting.

Hands down, best words anyone's ever said to me about my mental illness. 🙌 I mean, yes, please, and thank you very much. If you don't live it, there will always be so much you don't understand no matter how long you've walked beside me through it all. .
.
Sometimes the best way we can relate to others and help them is to be frank about our inability to relate 100% directly to what they're experiencing. Doing anything less can be a disservice and invalidate the horror they're experiencing in their own minds. It is OK to not totally get it. Truth is, WE KNOW YOU DON'T GET IT. So stop acting like you do all the time. It can feel like a slap in the face when you do. Legit, there will always be so much you don't understand... No matter how hard you try. And admitting that to us can be one of the most beautiful moments of honesty... ❤️ it doesn't mean you love us any less... and it won't mean we will out and out reject you (hopefully, anyway!!!). .
.
There will be times we will need to talk to others "like us" who DO get it. On a visceral level. But that doesn't mean we don't still need and really, really want you in our corner. So don't go away just because you don't understand. Please don't leave. But don't pretend or fool yourself into thinking you have it all figured out either, k? Promise? .
.
K. Love you!!!! ❤️

This is the happy face of a tired student who is proud of herself for overcoming huge obstacles. This is me. Allow me a chance to rejoice because my oh my I've been anticipating this moment of freedom for a while.
These last three months I attended every class that I was in town for except one, I lobbied for mental health policy reform on Parliament Hill, I knocked therapy out of the park once a week, I was a student teacher, I maintained good mental health while staying at home without my parents for six days, I kept my room immaculately tidy, I spoke to large groups at The Public Health Agency of Canada, Bell Canada, and The University of Manitoba, I was appointed to The U of W Board of Regents, I was hired as a tutor-mentor, I only used five acute anxiety pills, I won a community leadership and academic excellence scholarship, I achieved a 4.25+ GPA, I was interviewed by a bunch of mainstream media outlets, I put a lot of time into friendships and socializing, and I diligently worked on my physical fitness and nutrition. YAS SIREE! Fall-term 2017, I am thankful for you! 💜

Facebook has announced that they are developing AI as a way to, “scan posts for patterns of suicidal thoughts, and when necessary send mental health resources to the user at risk or their friends, or contact local first-responders.” This is a really interesting article about how suicide prevention might look in the future of social media. Give it a read and let us know what you think in the comments! #InfoThursdaySCYSPI #hopefulholidaysatSCYSPI2017 (link in profile)

It’s easy to ruminate in negative thoughts. Push yourself to do one positive, enjoyable activity (small or large)for yourself to get out of the funk!

Loving our new counselling and mindfulness garden! We built this for the amazing clients who share their mental health journeys in our practice with us everyday. Sometimes we need the peace and beauty of nature to envelope us as we heal together. Beautiful birds, trees and many cups of tea! Alyse 👱‍♀️

I’m having mixed emotions today! Super moody. I was happy all day, then remembered that Cody’s death anniversary is on Saturday, the 16th of December. He died 2 years ago. I’ve been trying to push it out of my mind... but I know I shouldn’t. So many things have been reminding me of him lately. For those of you who don’t know, he is my ex fiancée and he killed himself. Some are in denial and say it was an accident... but no. It wasn’t. I knew him better than anyone ever could. We were together on and off since I was 13 to 19. Sometimes I even feel his Spirit touch me... and he visits my dreams. I miss him so much. But I somehow have the feeling that now is the time to truly let go. So many things have been synchronizing... I’ve been meeting people who remind me of him. It’s hard to explain. It’s like the universe keeps ripping at my heart until I finally can accept that he is gone. I don’t want him to be gone. I am finally becoming happy within my own skin, accepting myself... just truly being happy, taking the steps for myself to become my best Self: changing my diet (&actually eating on a consistent basis instead of starving and then binging), strengthening my muscles to align with my extreme flexibility, doing my makeup because it makes me feel good, and just so much more.... and a part of me just wants him still in my life. Even though he broke up with me for someone else a couple years before he died, then tried coming back and for the first time I rejected him to protect my soul, even though our last talk was a big fight, even though he hurt me so much, and I stayed gone to save myself, I loved him. He had my heart. No one understood me like he did. No one could ever replace him, regardless of the traits that may be similar. I know this post was about my HAIR, but this was just me attempting to push away what’s really bothering me. I HAVE been happy, so this is no fake. But I have been so moody today. Saturday, I feel, will be a turning point for me, though. The Timing of the universe has just been strange... the people it has been sending me, the stuff I’ve been letting go, the deep healing... there’s something shifting in my soul.

It's THURSDAY!
Just Breathe.
Life can be so debilitating.
Up early. On the Go. Moving at Top Speed. Arriving on time. The Commute.
And now... It's Holiday Season!
Christmas , Hanukkah, New Years!! The decorations...
The Presents.
The outfits.
The party goes on!
Maybe it's time to slow down.
Just a bit.
Relax and take in some crisp winter air.
Don't fight the cold - just for the moment- let the cold air illuminate you as it fills your lungs.
Go on. Do it.
As air breathing animals - we need oxygen to both energize and relax us.
As you breathe - believe!
Believe that you are special.
Grateful for life .
For thought. For food. For shelter. For living to behold another day.
So many of us did not get up this morning.
The world is constantly in motion .
Both spiritually and physically.
Season's change for a reason.
New growth. New Life. Death / Return to Spirit. Birth /Arrival from spirit into flesh.
As we jump on and off in tune with the eternal waltz we call life.
Be grateful. Remember-
you chose this life.
If you run thru it - gulp it down even.
You'll miss the flavor , those precious moments, the joy and...
The best part of all - the journey. BREATHE.♡

Today, I am at my gym. Working out. Sexy back day... 🏋🏻‍♀️
Day 11 of my 22 push-up challenge. First go round to honor all those suffering from PTSD and for all those that lost their lives to suicide, including all the sisters that served and are serving in the military. And I admire you ladies for doing so... I was nominated by @mauffster.
Trauma causes PTSD. PTSD can develop as survivors of physical assault, sexual assault, combat war, disasters, and so many other traumatic events.
PTSD is a difficult condition to live with as it can bring forth an ample amount of negative effects such as the inability to sleep, extreme anxiety, depression, and other symptoms.
Approximately, 55 percent of women in the military developed a form of PTSD from sexual harassment and assault. In addition, on an average 22 veterans commit suicide per day due to PTSD. In additions, PTSD is the leading cause for suicide around the world. And PTSD is the 10th leadIng cause of death in the US. Suicide is PREVENTABLE. We just need to bring awareness to it.
Lost my beloved brother 14 years ago to suicide from PTSD cause by lifetime of child abuse by the hands of my father. He was only 25 years old. A perfect soul gone to soon. #ripdeavouth
If you are a love one is contemplating suicide, please contact the suicide hotline in the US at 1-800-273-8255. They are open 24/7.
Help is there, just reach out, grab on it, and hold on. There is always HOPE. I feel your pain and the pain is only temporary and will pass. I know this because I have been through the process. Living with PTSD but it will never define me.

Nerd Alert!!! We got not one, not two, not three, but Four presentations accepted for the 2018 American Psychiatric Association annual meeting. Looking foward to presenting back home (NYC). MORE importantly, I'm thankful for the opportunity to share information that will hopefully advance health equity and decrease health disparities. Have a great team of colleagues and mentors. #healthequity #mentalhealth #publichealth #depression #schizophrenia #suicideprevention #anxiety #trauma #AmericanPsychiatricAssociation

Made the first donation from our pins to the @jedfoundation this morning. Swipe to see how much you all helped raise!🖤 (📸: @suicidesweetpea)

No matter how shitty your life gets at times always remember😌🌟

I spent my entire life trying to change who I was to fit in with groups of people or to be more socially acceptable-- only to still not be good enough for them.⠀

Have you felt this way? In your family? At school? At your church? In an online community? At your workplace?⠀

How do you deal?⠀

By the way, this beautiful quote comes from @awkwardlymagnificentlife 💜 who is a collaborative author for #HowILearnedToLoveMyself 💗⚡️✊ ... due out before Christmas. 🎄⠀⠀⠀⠀

@Regrann from @war.beard - I need your help.
My good friend Grant is officially launching his movement #RideOutOfTheDarkness to help raise awareness for suicide prevention and to raise money for the AFSP.org. He is a retired Marine and amazing humanbeing trying to help a noble cause. We need this to grow as much as possible! This is the only thing I ask of you, Please reshare this! "My name is Grant and I am tired.

I am tired of waking up to find that yet another friend, family member, co-worker, or notable person has decided to end his or her life prematurely.

I am saddened that people do not understand that it is ok to not be ok. It saddens me even more that people do not know that there is help for anyone and everyone out there. It saddens me even more that people do not realize that suicide only magnifies and spreads the pain to the ones that they love.
This is my journey to help the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention educate as many people as possible in suicide awareness and prevention, and to help them raise money for the cause. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States of America and each year is claims more than 44 thousand lives.

Through education and awareness we, as humanity, can do better. Please join me in any way that you can to help. Thank you, and remember that you ARE loved, so NEVER give up!! -Grant"

I don't typically share personal details, but today I feel that there is much value in what I've been through that others can gain from. I have survived emotional and physical abuse, domestic and sexual violence; I aged out of the foster care system as a child. I've mourned the loss of a 12 year relationship and survived suicidality. I'm a minority single woman, nontraditional graduate student with children in a STEM field who just recently applied to doctoral programs. There is apparent strength in me that I was not aware of until recently. After applying to doctoral programs and knowing I have what it takes to succeed, it caused me to look back at all I've been through, how many people did not believe that I had the ability, and to see how far I've come and how resilient I truly am. There's value in trauma and disasters and obstacles that we endure in life, but only if we can figure out how to use it to our own advantage, how to survive, and thrive. Take those obstacles, reach way down and pull out the resilience inside of you to use against them. Never give up. Never doubt yourself. And of course mistakes will be made, but that's true for everyone, just learn and continue on. Be the survivor you are most capable of being. Love others, find joy, trust yourself. Shine on 🌟

#regram from @rawbeautytalks

I say this all the time, as women we have got to learn to love our own sex. Men have treated me kind, it's women that have been competitive and jealous and un-supportive. Is it a reflection of our own insecurity? Must we feel the need to chop down another female? Why do we blame the woman? There is a reason why we haven't seen a woman in power, as if being a woman weren't hard enough why be petty. There is something beautiful about every woman, and it pains me to say that I have been yelled at by another woman, she said to me, "oh you think you're all that." Pointing and laughing at me, and this is just the tip of it. Girls can be so mean and so mean to other girls. The way they scowl at them and walk by them. They don't recognize beauty Instead they are threatened by it. Be kind. Love your own sex. Show respect. Be on the same side of the fence. Look out for each other. Compliment and show love. Support your fellow woman, say hello. Don't be afraid to stand united and fight for a very important cause--because if we don't stand united, we can't expect to see any real change in the world. #loveyourownsex 🖤.🔙🔻🔛🔺🔝🔻🔜🔺 #considerothers #inspirational #BPD #bipolar #observe #describe #participe #mindfulness #onemindfully #wisemind #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #spirituality #psychology #astrology #horoscopes #blog 🌟#clickthelinkinmybio 🌟#whatsyourstory #whatsyourbirthday #ttcc🎈🎈🎈

Trauma can cause one to stop life and become enclosed in their pain. Be a light of hope.

Emotional and psychological trauma is the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world. Traumatic experiences often involve a threat to life or safety, but any situation that leaves you feeling overwhelmed and isolated can be traumatic, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. It’s not the objective facts that determine whether an event is traumatic, but your subjective emotional experience of the event. The more frightened and helpless you feel, the more likely you are to be traumatized. Working through trauma can be scary, painful, and potentially re-traumatizing, so this healing work is best done with the help of an experienced trauma specialist. Finding the right therapist may take some time. It's very important that the therapist you choose has experience treating trauma. But the quality of the relationship with your therapist is equally important. Choose a trauma specialist you feel comfortable with. If you don't feel safe, respected, or understood, find another therapist.

It was a honor to immortalize the hope this family keeps in their time of heart ache. Depression is real and we need to acknowledge it. If you know someone who needs help reach out before it's too late. If your reading this and need someone to talk to I'm here! #suicide #suicideprevention #simicolontattoo #simicolonproject #fayettevilletattooartist #nctattooers

Another shot from my photography session with @fullarmorband Matt for his written piece, "The Immaculate Heart." His tattoo is a symbol of hope to those who struggle with depression or self-harm. .

#TBT to me speaking about what it meant to have a "Regal State of Mind" at Chapel during my Miss Philander Smith College 2011-2012 week. Back then, my focus was campus pride and self esteem. Now I'm blessed to expand this platform to bring awareness about mental health, hygiene, and illness! 👑💚
