Retrospect

Read Director Lisa Klein’s recently published piece on Mental Health on The Mighty. Looking back at loss and lessons learned along the way, “How could he have done that to us? It was so selfish.”

I wondered this as well, until I started talking with and listening to people with lived experience – people who had attempted to take their lives and survived. Those conversations compelled me to think differently. To look at my dad’s life through a different lens, one of courage rather than of weakness.’

Read the rest from our director’s heartfelt piece here on The Mighty’s website.
