Above Ground Podcast #221, Living on a Prayer

Welcome to episode two hundred twenty-one of the Above Ground Podcast. This week, Will & TPP kick off September and Suicide Prevention and Awareness Month with a raw and frank discussion on staying alive when you don’t want to live. This could be a triggering conversation for some, so take precautions when listening.

Living on a Prayer was not just Bon Jovi’s biggest hit; it’s sometimes how we survive life’s tragedies. Throwing up our hands and saying, I can’t do it alone, finding our higher power, and letting go. For those of us who live with suicidal ideation or depression, sometimes wanting to live is just too hard. Fighting to make it through another day is far too heavy a burden.

During this month, we remember the loss. But let us not forget those who are still among us, giving their best to survive another day. Help us celebrate those we lost on Sunday, September 24, 2023, at Orenda Pavilion in Saratoga Spa State Park for the Out of the Darkness Walk for RITA 2023 at 9 a.m.

Also, this Saturday, September 9, from 1-4, at the Knox Town Park for the Kiwanis Club of the Helderberg Art Festival for Mental Health, 2192 Berne-Altamont Road, Altamont, NY 12209. Check out Amy Modesti’s piece spotlighting AGP. She will be there and is looking forward to seeing everyone.

Thanks for listening, and return every Wednesday. Please sign up for RITA to walk, maybe donate, and until next time, stay Above.
