Abstract:

How do we talk to our young children about suicide? This book offers a gentle way of explaining a loved one's suicide without sweeping it under the rug. By starting an open and hones conversation with our youth, we can help break down the stigmas and start raising mental health awareness. We need to teach our children that it's ok to speak up and ask questions about feelings they don't understand instead of keeping our emotions hidden. Together we can stay above the rug! This book includes resources on suicide support, a space to write a letter to your lost loved one, and a page where you can attach his/her photo. For each book that is purchased, part of the proceeds go to SASS (Suicide Awareness Survivors Support). (Taken from the back cover)
