E86: Suicide Widow Etiquette with Marlie Rowell


After Marlie Rowell's husband took his own life, she became a suicide widow. Her art project and website Suicide Widow Etiquette sheds light on the shamed, hidden conversation surrounding suicide. We're talking about how we must "feel to heal," how secrets keep us sick, and, my favorite... the refrigerator analogy of grief. Marlie is also sharing her suicide etiquette tips for friends and family of those grieving a suicide. Also this week, I'm reminding you of my BONUS online grief support group happening Monday, July 8 at 8:00pm Central Time.
