When a Parent Dies By Suicide with Shiggi Pakter - E015

Today's episode is all about dealing with the death of a parent.

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and over eight hundred thousand people per year, worldwide, died by suicide. On today's episode, I talk with Shiggi Pakter, a Kenyan born woman, who now lives in London, who last year lost her mother, by suicide.

This episode is something different than other episodes. We all deal with grief differently. We share our experiences of losing a parent and how we dealt with it. Go ahead and take a listen to this episode and then message me on Instagram in case this is a subject you want to talk about!
