ASH & NAMI Together

15 March 2013

NAMI & ASH at MCPH

I'd posted a photo of an NAMI Western Slope public event in which several people spoke on suicide postvention, prevention, and intervention. This was the day I learned to (a) always have 3 main talking points for the media and (b) don't say anything in front of reporters that I don't want to have chopped up and used out of context. The reason I learned this is because Juliet Carr, founder of Attempted Suicide Help and author of the book by the same title, gave an amazing and enlightening speech and was quoted out of context in the local paper the next day. Onward and upward! That's the only place we can go after a thing like that happens.
