3:10: Dr. Amanda:what does it mean to battle suicidal thoughts.

3:20: Dr. Amanda:How did you first battle these thoughts?

3:25: Trina: I experienced a lot of tragic losses when I was younger. I lost my sister and dad within a year and then all of a sudden, how do you deal with this?

9: 45: Dr Amanda:Did you have anybody to confide in during the hard time

9:50: Trina:  I didn’t think I could. I feared reaching out to anyone and I was afraid what would happen after that more than I feared death itself.

11: 15: Dr Amanda:  Did you ever get to share this with anybody?

11:20: Trina: No, not even my best friend of 15 years knew. No one really knew who I was.

12: 50: Dr. Amanda:What are barriers when people try to reach out for help?

12:55 Trina: It was feeling like this is something I had to fix the stigma and mentality that everyone will look at you like you are too weak.

14:35: Dr Amanda:  What are some suggestions you want to provide for those who are struggling?

14:45: Trina: Back then, I had God and I knew of Jesus but I didn’t know he can make you whole.

20:15: Dr Amanda:Is there any other wisdom tips that you think is important for the audience to overcome suicide ideation or thoughts?

20:20: Trina: I didn’t know that there is healing and that God speaks to you.
