Episode #1 - SAAD- Suicide Awareness, Anxiety, and Depression.
Nearly everyone suffers from anxiety, depression, loneliness, and even suicidal thoughts. It is how those are processed in our brain that determines if we can manage them or if they overwhelm us. Our premier episode for the Help Us Save Lives TV show identifies signs of mental illness and a pathway toward mental wellness. Suicide IS preventable. Anxiety and depression are the early signs of mental stress and illness and suicide is the end of someone's life when the pain overwhelms them to the point that ending that pain is better than choosing to continue their life, with endless agony and pain for the ones they leave behind.

Finding Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Children. This short video shows the history of how Indigenous people were removed from their land, put into non-traditional homes, then allowed to return to their own land. Many of these children forced into residential schools were never seen or heard from again. Many are also buried in unmarked graves across Canada and the United States. Murdered women and children must be accounted for too. See an article here.
