Talking Suicide and “Still Here” with Dr. Stem

Enjoying Life Is The Best Suicide Prevention Tool There IsLast week I had the privilege of being on the Dr. Stem Show – Living Fearlessly Outloud on Radio Outloud with Dr. Stem Mahlatini. We discussed my experiences with depression and suicide attempts as well as some of the lessons in my book, Still Here: How to Succeed in Life After Failing At Suicide.

From The Show:
Suicide is a tragic event with strong emotional repercussions for its survivors and for families of its victims. In 2014 there were  more than 42,000 people in the U.S. who killed themselves, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, making it the 10th leading cause of death overall. The numbers are astounding and a reminder that LIFE is precious. With enough education, empowerment, and encouragement our guest Andy Grant reminds us that enjoying and living life fearlessly out loud is the best suicide prevention.

The annual age-adjusted suicide rate is 12.93 per 100,000 individuals. Men die by suicide 3.5x more often than women. On average, there are 117 suicides per day. White males accounted for 7 of 10 suicides in 2014. From 1999 to 2014, suicide rates in the United States rose among most age groups. Men and women from 45 to 64 had a sharp increase. Rates fell among those age 75 and older. The increases were so widespread that they lifted the nation’s suicide rate to 13 per 100,000 people, the highest since 1986 a concern that needs to be addressed as we face the holiday season.

Andy teaches workshops ranging from energy tools to ebook publishing, and is the founder of Real Men Feel, a movement encouraging men to come out of the emotional closet. Andy is committed to helping people realize how magnificent life is meant to be. Andy believes happiness is a learnable skill and no matter what has happened in the past, no matter how we feel right now, we are all capable of feeling happier and enjoying our lives even more.

“Enjoying life is the best suicide prevention tool there is.” Andy Grant

Here is a small sample of the reviews.

“Where does the doubt and darkness come from? How do you cope and endure? Andy’s story isn’t a tidy tale wrapped up with a bow. He faced ups and downs. He documents everything, along with all the ways he’s mounted his comeback. A reader might be frustrated in Andy’s inability to name one main problem or one best solution in his battles. But this is real life and real writing.” ~A Reader in Iowa

From Suicide Attempt Survivor to Oscar Winner!

Sunday night at the 87th Academy Awards, first time Oscar award winner for Adapted Screenplay, Graham Moore gave the most dramatic speech. He publicly announced that he had tried to kill himself at the age of 16 and urged everyone to stay weird and different.

Graham said,”When I was 16 years old, I tried to kill myself because I felt weird, and I felt different, and I felt like I did not belong. And, now I’m standing here. So, I would like this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she’s weird, or she’s different, or she feels like she doesn’t fit in anywhere. Yes, you do. I promise you do. Stay weird. Stay different. And, then when it’s your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message to the next person who comes along.”

When I was growing up I was called weird, was told I had weird friends and was picked on, but I had a saying, “Weird friends are the fun of life!” 

I’m touched to see more people coming forward, sharing their struggles and taking the stigma away from talking about suicide. I’m more thrilled to hear stories like Grahams’. Tales of people who choose life and just rock it out.

I am glad we are all still here. For this to be in the news as my book Still Here: How to Succeed in Life After Failing At Suicide is released feels like such powerful synchronicity to me.

By the way, Graham Moore won the Oscar for, The Imitation Game, which is a great movie and well worth seeing if you haven’t. I’ve watched it twice myself. Graham even wrote a line of dialogue in the movie the was very much of the same spirit as his speech, “it’s the very people who no one imagines anything of who do the things no one can imagine.” Indeed.

Still Here: eBook Launch

Still Here ebookI am excited to announce that my latest and most personal book is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com. Still Here: How to Succeed in Life After Failing At Suicide includes the hard-learned lessons, practices, and techniques that helped me change from being someone who dreads life to someone who truly loves life.

Each year more people die by suicide than by war and homicide combined. If you’ve lost someone to suicide, have thought about it yourself, or have made an attempt, this book can help you. If you have friends or loved ones dealing with depression and suicidal thinking, this book can help you. Still Here is full of tools and exercises to assist anyone in creating more happiness in their life.

Still Here: How to Succeed in Life After Failing At Suicide is being officially released on Wednesday February 18, 2015.

I’m looking to get some early readers, reviews and feedback before I release the physical version of the book in a few weeks.

I know this material works, because I am still here. You can be in control of your thoughts and emotions instead of at their mercy. This is not a memoir. It is not about anyone’s past, it is about your future.
