Among them are nearly 26 million who have fled their countries (over half under the age...

Remembering Loved Ones Lost to Suicide: Give Yourself Permission to Heal
My sister, Amber, died by suicide on New Year’s Eve 2013. I’d last seen her just a few days prior at Christmas.

In fact, she’d been a patient in my facility just six months prior. As a counselor and as her brother, I had so many questions. How could I have missed the signs? Did I fail her? Did I let her down? In the immediate aftermath, I felt anguish, hurt, anger and ...

You slide out of bed, gather your belongings, hightail it to the bathroom and quickly get yourself street ready. Wondering ho...
