Author, Community Leader, Mentor, Educator, a certified Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Trainer (ASIST Trainer) and Motivational Speaker Kimberly D. Travis, founder of There is Life after Life (LAL), had her world turned upside down on June 18, 2017 upon receiving a phone call that her then 19yr old son had taken his own life with a gunshot to the head. Her son suffered from severe depression.
Although parental and family guidance, as well as professional counseling was offered, the 19yr old chose a silent route of escape, suicide.
Suicide is alive and real and has become a way of escape for children and adults of all ages. Suicide doesn’t attract itself to a certain name, gender, or person of status, rich or poor, famous or not, Christian and Non-Christian, it DOES NOT CARE!
