Influencing Public Discourse
Published by Kindred Spirit Latino Center for Grief and Loss
I am a licensed clinical social worker and Texas State Board Approved Clinical Supervisor. I have 14 years of experience working with grief, loss and bereavement as well as providing educational workshops to professionals and the community. Working with survivors of suicide loss, an individual or family may lose support systems once in place. Research shows many survivors of suicide loss often experience social isolation. There is also research showing after 10 days of social isolation, an individual begins to experience symptoms of depression. I am a survivor of suicide loss and my own personal experience has led me to help increase awareness, knowledge and reduce the shame and stigma associated with suicide, mental heatlth and begin conversations in the Latino family unit.
