Episode Info:

Melissa Bottorff-Arey’s life turned upside down when her son, Alex, took his own life during his junior year at college.

This week, we’re discussing the rage that often follows learning more information about a loss, how our mental health is impacted when someone we love dies, the glaring holes in our school systems that fail kids at an emotional and mental level, and how the suicide of a child changes identity as a mother.
