This week’s episode titled “Suicide Prevention-Holding space can save lives-Connection/Persuade/Refer”, I have the honor of interviewing Jill Babiarz who is a death by suicide survivor. Jill leans into her intense lived experiences of severe depression, suicide, and multiple baby losses, She is dedicating her life’s work to the people who have died, so that we may understand their stories and help save lives. As a Yoga Practitioner, Jill’s been teaching healing movement for over 2 decades both through her online platform and in her studio in Madison, Wisconsin. She is training to become a Yoga Therapist and her mantra is to “breaking the silence so prevention can get there before it becomes a crisis”. She talks about the technique that we can all learn to help support those in crisis called CPR which stands for Connection Persuade and Refer. You will be moved by her story and her dedication to destigmatize the shame and blame of suicide. She can be reached at www.healingwithjill.com to book healing sessions or www.jillbabiarz.com. If you know someone in crisis, don’t hesitate to call your local mental health crisis line, drive them to the ER or dial the National Suicide prevention hotline for them at 1-800-273-8255.
