This little weirdo got so much love (and so many wonderful little gifts) from his aunties and uncles at #AAS18. I’m so glad I was able to bring him and Fel, as unorthodox as it may be, and we’re still missing everyone so hard.

Had the pleasure of attending the @aasuicidology conference in Washington DC. So much incredible information from people filled with compassion to figure out how to build the best safety net when someone is suicidal. We MUST act NOW! Email your representatives and tell them to pass HR 2345! #suicideprevention #AAS18 #mentalhealthmatters #YOUmatter #mentalillness #advocate #speakup #yourvoicematters #zerosuicide #SPSM

It’s been a very intense week. First got to speak at the AAS National Conference, then gave a talk at the NATCON National Conference. I feel like I got the emotional shit beat out of me, but I believe it’s been worth it. I think I’m going to take some time off from speaking for a few months to recoup. #suicideprevention #aas18 #natcon18 #speaker #author #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth

landed safely in the windy city still feeling held by people who are so passionate about staying alive and keeping others alive. a community that works toward life being something people choose over and over, where people can utilize and access resources that are beneficial, and for people to know the truth: that the entirety of their being matters, they are loved/worthy/wanted/needed/alive. i’m so grateful to lead a life that i almost couldn’t. to turn my experience into passion for my path as an advocate, a person in recovery, and a future clinician. to have the ability to utilize my knowledge and skills for a topic i care so deeply about. i feel honored to know these people doing such amazing work. difficult work. work that can be so draining but also so fruitful. for people who dedicate their lives for others’ lives. to learn from them, both professionally and personally, is a privilege. thank you from my whole heart, not only for your passion and dedication and work, but for your support, validation, and open arms. i love all y’all. #suicidespringbreak #AAS18 #designforgood @aasuicidology #artschoolgradedition

This past week I worked as a social media ambassador for the American Association of Suicidology (@aasuicidology) Conference in Washington, DC. Part of my work was getting short sound bites from my peers in the suicide prevention community. I’m quite happy with the results. Thanks to all who offered their time and wisdom including Julie Cerel, @kevinhinesstory, @draper1005, @arur, @sspencerthomas, Craig Miller (@becauseidream), Thomas Joiner, @eduardoruvega, @jstohlmannrainey, and @jbsinger. #aas18

2 conferences, 2 hotels, many workshops, countless connections, one purpose! Some don't understand it, and they don't have to. I know my purpose and I will continue to work toward my passion. After this week around some of the greatest minds in the field, I've realized and decided my next move in my career. Headed home tomorrow to start working on my next journey! #aas18 #natcon18 #suicidology #mentalhealth #suicideprevention #wellness #mentalhealthawareness #isavelives #MHFA #DMV #futurephd

"Let people tell their story, tell of their pain. And let others listen. We discovered that in telling, that people begin to experience a healing." - Desmond Tutu

I have that quote at my desk & add it to every presentation & share it whenever possible...such a perfect way to illustrate what we do in this world of #suicideloss ❤️❤️ Humans supporting humans thru pain and grief in such a simple, beautiful way ❤️❤️ Thank you #AAS18 for reenergizing me & reminding me that I'm exactly where I need to be right now ❤️❤️ Genuinely enjoying the company of the folks you get to work with all day everyday doesn't hurt either ❤️❤️ #stopsuicide

I’m so incredibly grateful that I was able to attend the #AAS18 conference these last few days. I found my professional home in the American Association of Suicidology and it’s so encouraging to see these 1,300 scholars and community members coming together to tackle suicide.
In the last session of the conference, I saw Greg Hudnall’s presentation about the great work he’s doing with HOPE Squads in Utah. I spoke to him for a while about my work and how we could implement HOPE Squads in Lansing and surrounding area schools. It’s so great to have these connections from Utah and across the country. Great to connect with Greg again!

Then we walked to the Capitol Building for the first ever #RallytoPreventSuicide. It was great to see so many people rallying together to fight suicide and advocate for change. To be at the U.S. Capitol with over 500 dedicated and passionate people reignited my own passion for this work. What an inspiring and fitting end to a wonderful conference. #AASinAction #SPSM #StopSuicide

It’s an honor to join fellow loss survivors, attempt survivors, advocates, professionals, & researchers as we learn how to prevent suicide. If you are struggling - you are not alone and there is hope!! Text 741-741 to connect with someone. The time to end suicide is now! #AAS18 #AFSP #RallyToPreventSuicide

False alarm, but still scared the shit outta me. I also had an asthma attack on my way back to our room and somehow managed to calm the fuck down and fall back asleep pretty quickly. @_carlosincharge #washingtondc #AAS18 #conference #hotel #capitolhill #tooearlyforthis #firetruck

Very grateful for the opportunity to have Mindfull Aus represented yesterday with CEO Matt Runnalls presenting his views on the importance of lived experience advocacy within the industry, bridging the gap between connection in accessing help and treatment and how it helped change his life and continues to save many others, along side some amazing game changers and champions from the field from all over the world yesterday at the American Association of Suicidology Conference in Washington DC.
.
Speaking and panelling with Scott Chisholm (Canada) from Collateral Damage Project , Eduardo Vega and his incredible experiences and journey through Suicide prevention in Fiji & Sally Spencer-Thomas and her work with United Survivors.
.
Learning, laughing, but most importantly spreading love, kindness & compassion.
.
Suicide Prevention is everybody’s business and if we’re going to start to see a decline in lives lost, lived experience advocacy is a vital cog in the wheel to wellness.

#HOPE - Hold On Pain Ends. This has been the theme here at the @aasuicidology annual conference. When we share our stories of lived experience, those struggling are able to find life rafts of hope to cling to when they feel like they’re drowning. These examples of individuals who once wondered if life was worth living are now thriving and managing their conditions. (Shameless plug: @thisismybrave’s YouTube channel houses over 600 of these stories 🎬🎤) We will ALL grapple with pain and painful seasons in our lives. Pain is a human condition that is unavoidable. We must stop and realize that there is help out there, if we can only find the courage to ask, and the compassion to extend a hand if we see others in pain, we can end this crisis. #StorytellingSavesLives 🎤💚

If you asked me to pick what my favorite session was today, I wouldn't really be able to tell you because they all were amazing.
We started the morning with this! Later, there were intense debates, TED-like talks, innovative approaches to groups, thought leader sessions, and we finished with Kevin Hines showing his inspiring and powerful documentary/film "Suicide the Ripple Effect"
Looking forward to more....because I'll #beheretomorrow

Third times a charm, right? This is my third time seeing Suicide: The Ripple Effect. Had to get my buddy @joewilliams_tew again. So sad he's not here but there are other members of Team Ripple in America with @kevinhinesstory. I hope everyone gets to see @theeffectfilm! This panel discussion with Kevin and Team Ripple is going to be awesome!

My goal before 40 is to go to Australia. I'm coming to visit your land Joe!!! #suicideprevention #wellness #mentalhealth #aas18 #recovery #wesavelives #suicidology #teamripple

Day two of the @aasuicidology conference has been an amazing whirlwind. Every session I’ve attended has been so enlightening and informative. Inspiring thought leaders I’ve read and admired for years are all here, and I’ve been able to connect with colleagues and re-connect with friends from around the country. The research in this field is more important than ever, and I’m so glad to be a small part of it. Tonight, we get to see a screening of Kevin Hines’s new film Suicide: The Ripple Effect (@theeffectfilm). So excited for the rest of #AAS18!

This week the American Association of Suicidology is holding its 51st annual conference. Jacki, our suicide follow-up program coordinator, will be presenting tomorrow at a panel on crisis center follow-up programs. If you're at the conference, the panel starts at 3:30! #AAS18
