Sometimes life hits you with events that will literally bring you to your knees. Even if you have never struggled with mental health issues before, you can find yourself in a dark place very quickly and struggle with thoughts that might surprise you.

Today we are joined by my friend Christian Hampshire as he shares with us about his struggle with mental health and why he openly talks about his experience with suicidal ideation in hope to break the stigma around mental illness and help others to not feel alone.

Christain found himself a few years ago with a dark depression and considering taking his own life after losing his job and struggling with drinking. Although he was an avid athlete and accomplishing physical challenges that many of us could only dream of, he still was left wondering if his family would be better off without him.

Today he shares with us how he was able to pull himself out of that dark place and why he is now passionate about sharing his story in order to help others who may be struggling as well. We discuss what family members can do for their loved ones who are hurting and how we can find the “controlables” in our own lives to improve our mental health.

This is a powerful story that I cannot wait to share with you. If you or someone you love are struggling with thoughts of suicide please find the suicide helplines below. If you need additional support in your mental health journey we would also love for you to be a part of our private Facebook group Hope to Recharge. As always, Together is Better.
