CW: Suicide. The ER sucks, the psych ward sucks, the medication side effects suck... what now??? This is the final instalment of my short series on talking about suicide and my thoughts on spiritual leader Teal Swan's suicide advice (which I learned about by listening to the fantastic podcast The Gateway = https://tinyurl.com/yc2j9w3e). It might seem like I'm being a little pessimistic when I talk about the state of things in suicide prevention resources, but I don't want to sugar coat anything. It's honestly ridiculous that so little attention goes into something that kills so many people (it's the number one cause of deaths in Australia for youth between the ages of 14-24). We are going to be the ones who change that, by talking about it, and working really freaking hard to stay alive even when it seems nearly impossible. Much love, Sarah.
