Parent finding hope after suicide of teen son

Her sharing, activism, and mutual support & grieving with friends and family is helping her to find hope and a way forward.

Between the suicide detailed in the article and the publication, the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school occurred. People were looking at mental health and how to predict violence &/or suicide in its midst. I was interviewed for the article to provide some ideas for how to differentiate between a typical experience of "teen angst" and a more serious situation.
