The session was called “Turning Pain into Purpose” which focuses a great deal on resilience, hope, and healing. I usually do this as a keynote but changed it up as a workshop to offer examples of how others who’ve lost a loved one to suicide give back after a loss, even examples that have nothing to do with suicide prevention. Because that can be triggering to some and that person still wants to find a purpose for the person they lost.
We discussed different ways to manage the grief, and how the experience no one wanted builds resilience.
What else did they learn? I’ll let my attendees tell you. 🙂
