Tonya Farrens is a suicide survivor. About 2 1/2 years ago, her dad took his own life. Tonya and I talk about the emotions that came with that… and what it took to learn to cope and feel okay again.
Now, Tonya is doing something incredible to not only honor her dad, but to help people who are suffering. It’s called the Bringing Back Happy Experience. It's a big concert event with a goal of giving people a chance to feel some joy.
This is a really powerful conversation about suicide. I know listening to conversations like this can be hard - BUT I believe you’ll come out of this feeling a little more equipped to either support a friend in need or to get that support yourself.
