It breaks my heart because prior to losing him by suicide, I was Just like the rule. But you know everybody's robots sometimes, and we're just going on about our daily lives doing our daily routines. And it's not until something stops you and stops you in your tracks that, you know. You start to see things around you as opposed to just what's right in front of you, You know? So I started to see after Elijah passed away, I think even in just in our city alone in Philadelphia, there were like three or four suicides, little boys, little black boys. I was like, Oh, my gosh, this this's a problem. This can't keep happening. What do we need? You know, do we need to talk about it anymore Education Because I was the type of person Whenever I heard about a suicide, my first thought was we were pants. What a friend someone I should know Something was going on. And the reality is sometimes you don't know. Sometimes you just don't know now you use in the film, Tio Start conversations. You want a black Star Festival award? Congratulations. Thank you. What? Surprised you about the reaction to the film? I think for me after losing Elijah and wanting to make the film I just wanted to share him as a grieving mother. The fact that no one but you get to know how cool he was, You know? And when I started making the film, of course, it was cathartic. You know, it was a healing process for me to be able to. I bathe myself in Mustang for almost two years with going through his photos looking through us for our drives, and the different devices that I had access to. It was something that I could have never imagined that I would have never imagined that the conversations that have been having across the country with other people who are either in my stimulus situation or know people is just a little good can come out. It was just a look. Come out of it, You know, So you are kind of becoming an advocate in a way. Yes, And I think that you have done the American Foundation suicide prevention out of the darkness walk, and I said, I'm going to do it every year until I even if I can't walk, I have grandbabies. Now they're pushing in the wheelchair. You know, it's so difficulty celebrating the accomplishments and the joy that are surrounding the film and the whole Situation because it is very sad is bittersweet, you know, is very bittersweet. And so I think the film has one. I think it's one over almost just about 10 awards at different festivals. So I woke up one morning after winning the impact Ducks wars. It was a Monday morning and I woke up in that instantly said, And then all of a sudden I felt like you know, there's a man drowning in the ocean and guts. This is Lord Help me. He sends him a boat. He lets the boat will pass and he sends them all. Lord help me his sense of a log. Love goodbye. And then when he's drunk, he said, Velour. Why didn't you help me settle? Essential boat? That was me a central love. That was me. So then I said, you know, maybe these awards Elek, stop your crying. If get up that darkness, you know, just popping me upside the head with these awards, saying girl stop it looked towards the lay. You know, there's no longer a reason to stay in the depths of the sadness and despair. Look at the light you're creating.

"Bad experience an increase in the rate of suicide death and that black Children overall ages, 5 to 12 died by suicide. All levels two times higher than my Children. When you hear those types of statistics, how does that make you feel as a mother of multiple? So it breaks my heart. It breaks my heart because prior to losing him by suicide, I was Just like the rule. But you know everybody's robots sometimes, and we're just going on about our daily lives doing our daily routines. And it's not until something stops you and stops you in your tracks that you know you start to see things around you, as opposed to just what's right in front of you. You know, so I started to see after Elijah passed away, I think even in just in our city alone in Philadelphia, there were like three or four suicides, little boys. Little black boys. I was like, Oh, my gosh, This's a problem. This can't keep happening. What do we need? You know, do we need to talk about it anymore Education Because I was the type of person Whenever I heard about a suicide, my first thought was wearing pants. What a friend's done something I should know Something was going on. And the reality is sometimes you don't know. Sometimes you just don't know now you use in the film, Tio Start conversations. You want a black Star Festival award? Congratulations. You what? Surprised you about the reaction to the film? I think for me after losing Elijah and wanting to make the film I just wanted to share him as a grieving mother. The fact that no one but you get to know how cool he was, You know? And when I started making the film, of course, it was cathartic. You know, it was a healing process for me to be able to. I bathe myself in mustard for almost two years with going through his photos, looking through his hard drives, and the different devices that I had access to. It was something that I could have never imagined that I would have never imagined that the conversations that have been having across the country with other people who are either in my stimulus situation or know people is just a little girl. Come out with just a look. Come out of it, You know, So you are kind of becoming an advocate. In a way. Yes, And I think that you have done the American Foundation suicide prevention out of the darkness walk, and I said, I'm going to do it every year until even if I can't walk. I have grandbabies. Now they're pushing in the wheelchair. You know, it's so difficult celebrating the accomplishments and the joy that are surrounding the film. And the whole situation because is very said is bittersweet. You know, is very bittersweet. And so I think the film has one. I think it's one over almost just about 10 awards at different festivals. So I woke up one morning after winning the impact ups wars. It was a Monday morning and I woke up and I got instantly said And then all of a sudden I felt like you know, there's a man drowning in the ocean and gods. This is Lord help me. He sends him a boat. He lets the boat will pass and he sends them all. Lord help me his sense of a logging less in love Goodbye and then when he's drunk, he said, Velour. Why didn't you help me? Sensual boat. That was me as central love. That was me. So then I said, you know, maybe these awards are like, Stop your cryin. Get up that darkness, you know, just popping me upside the head with these awards, saying Girl stop it looked towards the lead. You know, there's no longer a reason to stay in the depths of the sadness and despair. Look at the light you're creating. So I'm trying Teo be comfortable with the awards that the film was winning that the attention that it's getting You know, because it is It still hurts. You know, it definitely still hurts. But the realization that other people are being helped and benefiting from this then Okay, then maybe I can just straighten up a little bit more and hold my head up a little more higher and keep walking. You know who are growing arose in concrete, okay? You were growing arose and concrete says That's what this is because you take in the worst possible circumstances and turning into into something beautiful and you never know whose life You say there's so much shame, guilt and embarrassment with a suicide. Yeah, People don't want to talk about it, You know, Like God stated earlier. I was one of the people who, whenever I heard about suicide, I would think we were. The parents were friends, So I had to know Some things won't on. But it's not that, you know, And that was a lesson that I had to learn through through me Learning that lesson. I figured I said, you know that I need to speak up. I need to speak up because I know they're people who are just drowning in despair, drowning in their shame, drowning in their embarrassment. Don't want to talk about it, but it needs to be discussed. You know? Yeah, they need the help to the survivors are definitely ones who need the help, too. You know our our loved ones who died by suicide. There's there's not a tangible thing we can do for them. Now we can on Lee do for ourselves and our family and the people that the suicide effective. Yeah, people. Have to forgive themselves. They have to forgive the person who took your life. Have you done that work is given you and my goodness. Elijah. Who? Yes, Andy, because I was very angry and I realized that you know when you're angry. Your thoughts are clouded. Your decision making is clouded the way people view you is clouded, you know, and I had to release that anger. I was angry with myself. I was angry with his dead. I was angry with Elijah. I was angry with the world. I was angry, you know, and it was like If I hold this end is going to destroy me. And I said, You know, I am goingto have to combat that. The only way I know how is to create something that changes the way I feel about it. And this film Finding Elijah has done just that. Thank you. What a blessed thing. And where can people find the film? It is not available to the public. Yet, although on the 29th of September W. H Y is doing a regional broadcast at 7 30 of finding Elijah, and it is still actually active and film festivals Right now, that's an independent filmmaker. You know, it was never I'd never imagined. Okay, My film's gonna go be playing at a theatre, you know, or it's gonna be on TV. I really made the film for me. But the reality is, you know, I've had a couple of community screenings. Those are mind blowing because the people come we have those open conversations is like a love fest Will check out finding Elijah September 29th at 7 30 on W H Y. I have to say Yolanda Johnson young. It's been a pleasure speaking with you, you are truly our survivor. Beautiful out of something so difficult. Next up there, giving a mine of hope to students and caregivers.

"There's friends for survival to huge. Organizations are the American Association of Suicide Algae and the American Foundation suicide prevention that. These are only a few when I'm going to supply. Your listeners is a list on the on your website of all the organizations dedicated to suicide post pension and a little bit about grieve. Maybe some books that they could Order Online my book just came out the third edition. I'm so excited cited. Yeah thank you. It is It was twenty years in the making the first book. But I didn't say goodbye was In one thousand nine hundred ninety nine the second one was in two thousand nine and this one is totally different. But I didn't say goodbye helping families after suicide. It is chock full of information about how to support a family after a suicide. So if you are a clinician it has all the information in part one. The research the data the information needed to provide support to your client or patient and the second part is a story about a family in a suicide aftermath. And how to use this story to look deep into your own loss and use the questions in the back of each chapter to stop working the story at the end of the chapter and apply what you've learned from the storyteller to your own personal loss so I'm excited about. I didn't and when I when I was looking on your website one of the things that that I was in this latest edition. How your character of Alex in the book now goes back gives his his survivor input ten years after the fact? Yes Terry. What happens at the end of each chapter because he talks as an eleven year old child and at the end of each chapter he becomes a twenty one year old man and reflects back on what that experience was like for him at the time how he went back to school or how he had triggers or how he he talked to his younger sister who was five or an aunt who experienced gross post traumatic growth like all the experiences that I melted all the survivors of suicide loss into one little child and he became such a wise child. So what happened was I said doubt my book to about fifty reviewers and I said read this and tell me what you think of the character and they said he's the smartest eleven year old we ever met so I said Okay I have to make him more childlike but bring him back ten years later as that man reflecting on the experience so that made the book into what it is today. It's it's such a great book because if we have the opportunity to look back on our lives we could see how we grew from the experience how we found meaning in the experience how we experienced personal growth or post dramatic growth who the people are alive helped us to bind that meaning and how we we became who we are today because of our story of loss so at the end of each chapter we see how not only he has grown but have a whole family's grown his aunt in the story becomes very active with suicide prevention walks for the darkness walks. The suicide awareness walks. She really gets involved on the Muller. You just see the idea of friendship and how close. She became with one of her girlfriends. Who was there for her? Who gave her a locket with her husband's name on it just little things that really showed us the significance of linking objects through the years. Do you have anything that belonged to your loved. One that you now have. Who passed on yet they having.
